The Speed Twins (Riverside Studio 3, August 29th – September 28th) is set in a spectral version of the iconic lesbian bar, The Gateways, made famous in 1969 when it was featured in Robert Aldrich’s movie of The Killing of Sister George, starring Susannah York, Beryl Reid and Coral Browne, and including a ten minute fancy dress scene filmed on location in the real-life club. For many years the film represented the only mainstream depiction of the lesbian lifestyle on screen and for The Speed Twins lead character, Queenie, it would have been a rare glimpse into the alternative world of the life she didn’t pursue, but which haunts her still.
