Told Look Younger archiveThree encounters between three gay men in their early sixties in a restaurant where neither the menu nor the decor are ever the same. After years alone, following the death of his lover, Colin is planning to marry his nineteen year-old Turkish boyfriend. Is it love, lust or loneliness which drives him? And is Achmed simply a gold-digger in search of a UK passport. Whatever the truth, his two oldest friends are determined to stop him from taking the plunge though their own motives are far from clear. The relentlessly promiscuous Jeremy is in a thirty-year old relationship with a man he's only had sex with once in the last decade. While the celibate Oliver secretly fancies his graduate students and immerses himself in his unending research project on Cardinal Newman. This is the start for an emotional rollercoaster, which turns all their lives and assumptions upside down and inside out as they bitch, argue, confide, laugh and cry their way through the seasons and the changing dishes of the day. The play offers a funny, tough and moving insight into the lives of older gay men in particular and all older friends in general.
