presents the British premiere of Godfrey Hamilton's A
Dangerous Age at the Drill Hall in Chenies Street, WC1E
7EX from Wednesday, October 19 to Sunday, October 30, 2005.
Zach prowls a heat-struck beach on the shores of Lake Michigan,
nursing a hangover and a secret longing for a man who changed
his life forever with one act of love.
Meanwhile, Jackson sits in Hollywood pounding out furious e-mails
to the President of the United States - furious at the war, furious
at the fate his friends have suffered in a drowning New Orleans
but, most of all, furious at the agony suffered by one particular
soldier fighting in Iraq for a cause he cannot understand. A soldier
A Dangerous Age which features
Mark Pinkosh, is described as 'an utterly up to the minute contemporary
tale that tells a simple love story - a story proving there is
really no such thing as a one night stand.'
Starving Artists was founded by actor Mark Pinkosh (from Hawaii)
and Godfrey Hamilton (from Essex). The duo perform mainly in Los
Angeles and London (at the Drill Hall) but also tour internationally.
They have earned a reputation for bringing gay theatre to diverse
audiences with touching wit and strikingly poetic texts. Their
other work includes Sleeping with You, Don't Forget Me, Viper's
Opium and Road Movie.
The Drill Hall is a leading producer and presenter of original

and cabaret. Recent productions include Sisters Such Devoted
