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.
“It’s not the homosexuals but the gays I can’t stand”

Time, and experience, and history - unyielding and pitiless teachers. And yet…
there is still time to laugh, to fall in love, to desire and hold. There is still time to dance.
"...they succeeded magificently, in a considered, beautifully nuanced performance by Mark Pinkosh of a wonderfully witty text by Godfrey Hamilton."
