Fresh from his success at the Donmar Warehouse, Simon Evans directs this exciting new play by Maureen Chadwick, creator and writer of award-winning dramas Bad Girls, Footballers’ Wives and Waterloo Road.

The Speed Twins is an exhilarating, intriguing and moving story about a long lost love between two women.

Respectable widow, Queenie, is astonished and appalled when she finds herself trapped in a mysterious nightclub called “The Gateways” with two alarming companions and no way out. 

As the drink flows, uncomfortable truths are revealed and Queenie is forced to revisit that fateful motorbike crash she walked away from fifty years ago.

Torn between temptation and fear, she struggles to justify her life’s choices and clear her conscience. 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.
