About
Beginning its global journey in Tokyo in 2015, and currently running in New York City, Broken Bone Bathtub is an immersive theater project that takes place entirely in a bathtub. After a serious bike accident, a young woman musters up the courage to ask for help and shares her story, exploring themes of trauma, suffering, human generosity, vulnerability, and connection. The audience takes on the role of Siobhan’s close friends, listening and sharing their experiences, and assisting the cast-clad artist in the actual ritual of taking a bath.
