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)
A new verbatim performance exploring older men's experience of growing up gay throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s, collected from conversations with gay men aged 50+.
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?
Time may change me.
But I can’t trace time.
