The Speed Twins at Venus Theatre, May 3-27

The Speed Twins at Venus Theatre, May 3-27

THE SPEED TWINS
by Maureen Chadwick
directed by Deborah Randall

May 3 – 27, 2018
Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 8pm; Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm.

Location: Venus Theatre.

The Speed Twins unleashes an explosive and darkly comic conflict of desires and challenges us all to ask fundamental questions about identity. Three older women meet as strangers in a spectral version of the Gateways, the lesbian nightclub featured in the film “The Killing of Sister George”: Queenie is in complete denial of her sexuality, Ollie thinks she’s died and gone to Dyke Heaven, and Shirley looks as if she hasn’t aged a day since she lost the love of her life back in 1962. As the drink flows, uncomfortable truths are revealed as Queenie struggles to justify her life’s choices. 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? The Speed Twins unleashes an explosive and darkly comic conflict of desires and challenges us all to ask fundamental questions about identity.

Tickets are $40 General Admission, $20 for Friend of Venus, $15 for Student or Senior. Buy tickets here.

A *NEW* Murder Mystery: They Clone from Outer Space

They say hindsight is 20-20, and in hindsight, we probably shouldn’t have cloned a human. But, in the year 2020, Olympic decathlete, Al Lele, was cloned and the Blender line was born. Now in its third generation, Dr. Gene Blender has defied all odds. He’s married, has three daughters, and is a lead scientist at the University that created him. The hope was that he’d outlive all the previous clones in his line, but that hope died with him.

Amid protests about clones stealing American jobs, accusations of sexual misconduct, the unexpected delivery of divorce papers, and (according to some) the threat of invading aliens altering his genetic make-up, Dr. Gene Blender was found dead in his lab. Was it a heart attack or something more sinister? Who would destroy such a medical marvel? What was in those magic genes that made them so resilient to repeat cloning, and what can the DNA evidence tell us about the murder?

About the Author: Dr. Valerie J. Mikles is a recent inductee onto the BCT Board and is delighted to debut this original murder mystery. Scientist by day, sci-fi writer by night, and theater junkie in the hours between, her motto in life is “I can be everything I want, just not all at the same time.” Valerie’s novels will be available for purchase and signing by the author herself at our March Murder Mystery at Wendy’s! The paperback books are $15 each, and cash/credit are accepted.
