The Hodgepodge Group is an interdisciplinary, intersectional, insurrectional performance duo dedicated to producing cutting edge work that's feminist and fantastic, queer and questing, radical and ridiculous. Founded by director Miranda Haymon and designer Matt Catron, The Hodgepodge Group has performed all up and down the Northeast corridor. Their most recent project, an adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five, was presented in Philadelphia and at D.C.’s Capital Fringe. For more information, visit
