Written by: Sylvester Ada
The original drama pilot, pitched as Cabaret meets Masters Of Sex, depicts disparate perspectives on communist fear and organized crime in the 1960s, as seen through the eyes of a transsexual cabaret singer tasked with infiltrating a gay club run by a communist gangster.
Club Lavender is an extremely well written script, with a rich and textured story world that would look amazing on screen. It compares very favorably with many TV series such as Boardwalk Empire or Vinyl, yet does more than enough to stand out from the crowd. The world here is so specific and distinct, with the writer finding fresh spins on some of storytelling’s classic tropes, weaving elements of thriller and mystery into an intensely personal story. Seamlessly combining threads about transgender society in the 1960s, the fear of communism in Cold War America, and the way that both interacted with organized crime, this story remains relevant and poignant for modern audiences only now beginning to wrestle with these important issues.
