Photograph of Lois Weaver (left) and Peggy Shaw (right), used to promote Split Britches' performance "Anniversary Waltz" at Randolph Street Gallery, June 14-16, 1990. "Anniversary Waltz" was part of the larger event "In through The Out Door," June 1990.<br> "Mixing pop songs with tedious domestic activities, the team of Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver engage in a cabaret exploration of gender roles and the changing rhythms of a long-term love affair. In this lounge-relationship-anniversary-dance, they lip-sync to love songs by Perry Como and Barbara Streisand while acting out hypothetical romances between Katherine Hepburn and James Dean." --[Source: Event calendar -- May/July 1990] Photo credit: Amy Meadow.

Photograph of Richard Elovich, used to promote his performance "If Men Could Talk, The Stories They Could Tell" at Randolph Street Gallery, June 8-9, 1990. "If Men Could Talk" was part of "In Through the Out Door," June 8-30, 1990. "Danny Glick is an inarticulate comic-book artist lighting for his life. 'See where I come from,' he says, 'men don't talk, and the women are the explainers. My mother says, 'See that Danny? Your father's tuned I his head and that means he loves you.' Danny's doctor, Seuss, is a survivor of Auschwitz, and his lover, Waxman, is a high school science teacher who dreams of simultaneously winning the Nobel prize and moving like Tina Turner. These are three of the characters that come to life in Richard Elovich's If Men Could Talk, The Stories They Could Tell, which premiered at P.S. 122 earlier this year. RSG gave Elovich his Chicago debut in 1988; his work has also been presented extensively in New York. Currently, he is the director of Movement Research, a non-profit arts organization in New York, and he is a member of the activist collectives Gran Fury and ACT UP." --[Source: Event calendar -- May/July 1990] <br> "In honor of Gay and Lesbian Pride Month, RSG presents 'In Through the Out Door.' This series of nine evenings of performance, film and video addresses the fantasies and realities as well as the desire and discontent of same-sex individuals." --[Source: Event calendar -- May/July 1990]

Documentation of a July 22, 1990 reading by David Sedaris, and the June 29, 1990 performance of "The Redhead," by Dominique Dibbell, as part of the "In Through the Out Door Series."
David Sedaris reads from an untitled short story. Assuming the absurd position is normal, Sedaris's work underlines the ridiculous of the everyday.
Revealing a chameleon-like ability to assume divergent personas, Dominique Dibbell's "The Redhead" is a lesbian playing a gay man playing a straight woman who admits to an overwhelming desire to have a penis.
These performances were a part of the 1st annual series, "In Through the Out Door," held June 8-30, 1990. The series included nine evenings of performance, film, and video addressing the fantasies and realities, and desire and discontent of same-sex individuals. –[Source: Event Calendar -- May/July 1990]
