★★★★★ "The play is full of moments where individuals from all walks of life can connect; the overarching theme being one of self-identification and self-acceptance. There is power and fortitude in the script, grace and tremendous tenacity in the cast, and an overall sense of feeling good by the time the show has resolved itself. Definitely a must-see at Venus Theatre this spring, The Speed Twins is not one to miss."
-Amanda Gunther, Theatre Bloom.
★★★★ "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. Queenie reminds us of that, and Shirley asks us to find that part of us that makes us fall in love because that’s where our truth lies. Once you lose that, just like Queenie, you lose.
The Speed Twins is, as are most Venus shows, a refreshing take on the female perspective that asks us to remember a moment in time and a time in life."
-Kelly McCorkendale, DC Theatre Scene
The Speed Twins runs at Venus Playshack in Laurel until May 27th.
