The poignant, funny and heartbreaking story of three dreamers adrift in Los Angeles, Take Me with You is another extraordinary tale from the wilder shores of love by the multiple award-winning Starving Artists.
Premiering in 2007, Mark Pinkosh played all three roles in what the Los Angeles Times called ‘transcendent and impassioned performances’. The production played throughout the world, including at one of Starving Artists’ regular UK haunts, Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre, where the Manchester Evening News acclaimed the show:
Powerful and poignant, shot through with love and rage, despair and longing, Take Me With You from Starving Artists is a truly remarkable seventy minutes of theatre that’s a worthy successor to earlier triumphs like Road Movie and A Dangerous Age. (Manchester Evening News on the 2007 premiere)
Now Starving Artists revisit Take Me With You in an all new production directed by Jonathan Best and lit by Doug Kuhrt.
