Talk To Me Like The Rain ...

Donald Kinney and Robert Kinney

1989, 17:00 minutes, colour, English


Talk To Me Like The Rain... is the first tape by Robert & Donald Kinney on the subject of their own relationship as twins and gay men. Utilizing a Tennessee Williams play originally scripted with a heterosexual relationship, this production reorders the relationship as one between two brothers whose incestuous behaviour feeds a disillusionment in the trust and faith with one another. Economically and emotionally marginalized, finding in one another the impoverished reflection of the other, the incestuous tie creates the circumstance where the brothers consume one another in an attempt to secure stability in their individual lives.
