Press and Reviews:
Performed by Grant Smeaton
Written by Martin O'Connor
25th October-12th November 2011
"great-hearted amalgam of resonant texts and superb acting" ★★★★ (The Herald)
"subtly brilliant script...one of the most intimate pieces of theatre in Glasgow this year" ★★★★ (WhatsOnStage.com)
"a richly varied, poignant and humorous evening's theatre" (Sunday Herald)
“these compelling monologues are suffused with a droll humour...rendering them believable with bold flourishes of gesture and demeanour, though never obscuring the subtleties in O’Connor’s script, which frequently reveals more in what remains unsaid.” ★★★★ (Scotsman)
“Martin O’ Connor’s script is wonderful, finding magic in the commonplace… this is a defiantly unsentimental piece, itchy like the grit of glitter stuck in the eye – the gallows/Gallowgate humour sees to that.” ★★★★ (The Skinny)
An intimate, compelling and provocative new one man show. Just gonna have to be a different man…
Herald Angel Award Winner Grant Smeaton, transmutes into a spectrum of multi-coloured sexuality as seen through the eyes of five middle-aged characters. Smeaton riotously transforms sex and sexuality before your eyes and asks the question - where does our sexuality begin and end?
Written by Martin O’Connor and partly devised through personal accounts from the LGBT community, of growing up through the sexually ambiguous 70s and beyond.
Time may change me.
But I can’t trace time.
