The Twins Would Like to Say
World Premiere, Steppenwolf Theatre/Dog & Pony Theatre Co.
This promenade performance breathes life into the extraordinary true story of identical twins June and Jennifer Gibbons, Caribbean immigrants trying to find their place in provincial Wales in the 1970s. The young girls made a secret and powerful pact that went unbroken for over 20 years: speak to no adult, decide everything together, do everything in unison. But in the privacy of their room, the girls’ fantasy life blossomed as they wrote hyper-kinetic novels of teenage lust and rebellion.
