Retro(per)spective is a Split Britches greatest hits album for those who remember the 1980’s and a Split Britches primer for those who may have missed it! Retro(per)spective provides a humorous slant on love, life, work and play, featuring much-loved moments from old and new shows.

Retro(per)spective is a medley of Split Britches performances that have made the politics of gender and sexuality and the humour of human relations accessible to all ages and persuasions for the last 36 years, from 1980 to 2016.
