Starving Artists Theatre Company presents:

LET ME LOOK AT YOU

by Godfrey Hamilton, performed by Mark Pinkosh

As a part of the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival (IDGTF 2018) presented at the The Pearse Centre Theatre – 27 Pearse Street – Dublin, May 7 – 12 at 9 pm, additional performances May 7 & 12 at 2.30 pm

Q: What’s so funny about being gay? A: Let Me Look At You.

Let Me Look At You is the newest performance piece from award-winning Starving Artists Theatre Company. 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 UK’s Sexual Offences Act, Starving Artists offers up the oft-ignored warning: things haven’t changed all that much.

Celebrated for their combined talents as writer and performer, Godfrey Hamilton and Mark Pinkosh (partners on stage and off for 30 years) present their latest collaboration at the 2018 International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival.

Returning to Dublin, the team have staged previous shows at the Abbey Theatre’s Peacock Stage, as well as Andrews Lane Theatre.

Having won two Fringe First awards (Road Movie, Viper’s Opium,) and winning the first-ever Stage Award For Acting Excellence (Pinkosh, for Road Movie) the team have reunited with director, David Prescott (Artistic Associate, Theatre Royal Plymouth) and dramaturg, Ruth Mitchell. Lighting design by Douglas Kuhrt .

Writer Godfrey Hamilton’s prolific body of work includes over thirty plays. His work has also been staged at, among other places, the Tron, Traverse, Lyric Hammersmith, BAC, Finborough, Eden Court, Gardner Arts Center, Komedia and Manchester Royal Exchange. He has been commissioned by the Bush Theatre, Paisley Arts and Theatre Centre London. BBC Radio 4 produced his play Pacific Dreams, and the work he created with Pinkosh and Starving Artists has been seen in New Zealand, Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver, Paris, Munich, Miami, Seattle and San Francisco.
