WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Hollywood glamour meets queer performance art in this tour-de-force portrayal of gay pride pioneer "Joe" Carstairs, the 1926 world speedboat record holder. Phoebe Legere plays cross-dresser Joe Carstairs and seven of her girlfriends, including Tallulah Bankhead, Marlene Dietrich, Billie Holiday, and Mabel Mercer. Speed Queen, a trans-disciplinary play, uses wearable sculpture, dance, theater, and nude lesbian films to tell a story of heartbreak, heroism, and love.
