Commissioned by Bealtaine, the nationwide celebration of creativity in older age with Support from The Abbey Theatre.
Silver Stars is a moving and eloquent song-cycle, which tells the truly extraordinary real-life stories of older gay Irishmen. Men in search of happiness and fulfillment, in a country that was challenged by their very existence.
Based on celebrated singer/songwriter Seán Millar’s interviews with gay men from Dublin to New York, these songs capture tales of love, loss, family, spirituality, defiance and joy.
Silver Stars premiered at Dublin Theatre Festival.
“This beautifully crafted show is a truly wonderful experience. I am left feeling honored to have been presented with these very personal and deeply moving tales” (Theatre view New Zealand)
