'Honest in its depiction of the violence and cruelty that comes with love'
After spending many years alone following the death of his long-term lover, Colin is suddenly planning to marry his recent boyfriend, a nineteen year-old Turkish boy called Achmet. Is it love, lust or loneliness which drives him? Is Achmed simply a gold-digger in search of a UK passport? Will his decision affect the friendship with his two trusted friends?
Told Look Younger is a provocative, frank and insightful comedy by award-winning playwright Stephen Wyatt (The Divine Comedy, Gerontius, Vanity Fair, Memorials to the Missing, Radio 4). The production is directed by the celebrated and prolific theatre & screen director Sue Dunderdale (EastEnders, Coronation Street, The Bill, Casualty, etc.).
This production is co-produced with charity Theatre Alive! (Registered Charity Number: 1107357).
