THE SPEED TWINS

MAY 3 - 27, 2018

VENUS THEATRE’S 64TH WOMEN EMPOWERING PLAY

"Definitely a must-see at Venus Theatre this spring, The Speed Twins is not one to miss.
There is power and fortitude in the script, grace and tremendous tenacity in the cast...Randall’s vision for the show is simple and yet extraordinary in its simplicity.
...self-actualization, self-discovery, and self-acceptance ... playwright Maureen Chadwick has so excellently and humorously penned"
 - Amanda Gunther, TheatreBloom

"First love. Real love. True love. And self—gay or not—these are the truths of The Speed Twins that make it a special show, one that explores what it meant to be female in a time when being female was, in itself, a bit of a sin."
 - Kelly, McCorkendale, DCTheatreScene

Torn between temptation and fear, will she go to her grave with her conventional moral certainties intact? Or will she have the courage to re-write history and finally be true to her heart?

An explosive and darkly comic conflict of desires that challenges us all to ask fundamental questions about identity.

VENUS THEATRE: BUILD A BRIDGE

Help us reach our first goal - raise artist stipends to $200.

Our people have given so much at Venus. We have produced SIXTY-TWO women empowering scripts and stand among the longest running women's theatre companies in the world. We think it's time we start paying our people more. No amount is to small and no amount is to large. 

We hope you will journey over this bridge with us. We've got some pretty big plans ahead.

the SPEED TWINS

by Maureen Chadwick

The Speed Twins unleashes an explosive and darkly comic conflict of desires and challenges us all to ask fundamental questions about identity. 


Venus Theatre has a knack for finding new scripts that make you ache and ruminate all at once—appealing at once to emotion and intellect, deeply, endlessly.

Too Perfect for Words.
