Hailed by audiences as inspirational, lauded by critics as irresistible, THE TOPP TWINS: UNTOUCHABLE GIRLS tells the story of the world’s only yodeling country singing-and-comedy lesbian singing duo – Jools and Lynda Topp – who have inspired a generation with their politics and celebration of joy.
The twin sisters grew up singing to cows on their family’s dairy farm, and in the 1980s were young radicals, singing at the frontlines of every major political movement in their homeland of New Zealand. At a time when it was career suicide to be “out,” they still attracted a mainstream audience.
Doubly funny and enormously powerful singers, their politically-charged comedy theater helped change the social fabric of a nation, and in the process the Topps became unlikely cultural icons.
