Let Me Look At You
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. “It’s not the homosexuals but the gays I can’t stand”.

About Starving Artists Productions
Touring company founded by American actor Mark Pinkosh in 1983 and joined by British writer Godfrey Hamilton in 1988 that began reciprocal touring in the UK, commissioning UK theatre artists along with their American counterparts and forming the Starving Artists model of Anglo-American collaboration, co-commissioning and co-production. International work includes 'The Mirror and the Mask', commissioned from Welsh storyteller Daniel Morden, who has been a frequent collaborator with Starving Artists; 'Death and Dancing', commissioned from British writer and performer Claire Dowie; 'Bite the Moon', produced by Starving Artists and both written and performed by Seattle-based actress Maria Glanz; and a number of plays by the US writer Burgess Clark. Starving Artists has, in turn, received numerous commissions in the UK including from BBC Radio 4, Central London Arts, the Bush Theatre and Paisley Arts Centre. Always returning to themes of love and loss, commitment and loneliness, the plays nonetheless are flavored with humour, sometimes defiantly so as the characters break from the shadows of their lives in their bids for emotional freedom.
