“Why can’t you just be yourself: an actual person, not a look. Not an image”
Carl is 21, skinny, afraid to come out and hates his body.
Cameron is 30, has the classic Instagram body but can’t connect with the real world.
Phil is fat and 40, which in gay years feels like life is already over.
Toned, fat or skinny? Bodies can be a big part of a gay man’s world. But for Carl, Cameron and Phil having the ideal one matters a little too much.
Following the critically acclaimed 'Open' in 2019, Full Disclosure Theatre return to VAULT Festival with a touching three-hander that tackles the timely LGBTQ+ issue of male body image, and asks if our desire to look perfect cuts more than skin-deep.
Sometimes to bare all, means taking off more than just your clothes. Join us for a whole new reveal on a gay’s anatomy.
The cast includes Dominic Jones as Carl, Mark Philip Compton as Phil, and Taofique Folarin as Cameron, best known for starring in TV & Web Series 'The Grass is Always Grindr'.Book Now
