Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

From a conventional Surrey upbringing to global notoriety via "The Naked Civil Servant", Quentin Crisp was an extraordinary raconteur and wit. This much-acclaimed production, following a UK tour and off-West End season at the St. James Theatre, shows Quentin both in his beloved Chelsea flat as the 1970s dawned, and in his final years in his adopted New York, with the new millennium beckoning.

Mark Farrelly recently appeared at The Rialto in his other hit solo show, "The Silence of Snow: The Life of Patrick Hamilton". His West End credits include "Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?" opposite Matthew Kelly. He is directed by the renowned "EastEnders" star Linda Marlowe, who has won awards for her own solo work such as "Berkoff’s Women".
