A Starving Artists Production
A gay man wanders through Soho, thinking over the losses and triumphs of the past 50 years of gay experience.
DATE: Friday 5th & Saturday 6th October 2018
From the acclaimed International touring company Starving Artists. Double Fringe First winners and both The Stage & Manchester Evening News Best Actor Award.
Let Me Look At You is the newest performance piece from award-winning Starving Artists Theatre Company. Hilarious and touching. Stand-up meets solo theatre in this personal story from the gay “movement”. Grounded in history and battered by camp, a fifty-something gay man shares his misadventures while quietly having a nervous breakdown himself. On the fiftieth anniversary of the U.K.’s Sexual Offenses Act, Starving Artists offers up the oft-ignored warning: things haven’t changed all that much.

“ Transcendent and unmissable” – L.A.Times
Fascinating and deeply personal exploration of the evolving LGBT+ landscape. – THE STAGE
[Pinkosh is] a delight to watch, and persuasive, so the invocation of the piece is clear as day.
An effective call to arms. – BROADWAY BABY
This is a compelling hour of provocative theatre, as funny and life af rming as it is justly outraged. – THE LIST
