'Broken Bone Bathtub' is an interactive work that takes place in an actual bathtub. After a serious bike accident, a young woman musters up the courage to ask for help and shares her story. The audience takes on the role of her close friends, not only listening but sharing their own experiences, and assisting the cast-clad artist in the actual ritual of taking a bath. Must be age 21 or older to attend. One-drink minimum required.
