  • Artist Rooms
Some Men Need Help’ was a two-man play dealing with alcoholism written by John Ford Noonan. It opening at the 47th Street Theatre in New York on October 28th, 1982 but closed the following night. Starring Philip Bosco and Treat Williams it was also produced in association with Jane Holzer – a former Warhol 'superstar'. This poster design by Warhol features a screenprint based on a publicity photo of the two actors. The print shows characteristics of Warhol’s work from the 1980s. He has combined blocks of colour which, through their irregularity and breaking out of the image’s frame, appear collaged. On top of this is a printed photographic image and a screenprinted linear drawing, which highlights details of the figures.
