Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

Written and performed by Mark Farrelly

Directed by Linda Marlowe

Tuesday 12 – Saturday 16 June at 7.30pm

(No performances: Sundays and Mondays)

Tickets: £16, £13 conc.

 

From a conventional Surrey upbringing to global notoriety via The Naked Civil Servant, Quentin Crisp was an extraordinary raconteur and wit.

 

Openly gay as early as the 1930s, Quentin spent decades being beaten up on London’s streets simply for his refusal to be anything less than himself. His steadfast courage, and the powerful philosophy that evolved from those experiences, continue to inspire to the present day.

 

This much-acclaimed solo play, 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.

 

Naked Hope is a gloriously uplifting salute to a true one-off, and a timely reminder of the urgent necessity to live every day as your true self.

 

Mark Farrelly’s West End credits include Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? opposite Matthew Kelly. He is directed by renowned EastEnders star Linda Marlowe, who has won awards for her own solo work such as Berkoff’s Women.

 

 

Stepping Out by Richard Harris

produced by David Ball Productions

Tuesday 19 June – Saturday 7 July 2018

Performances at 7.30pm

No performances: Sundays and Mondays

Tickets: £16, £13 conc.

 

Dust off the tap shoes and join Mavis and an unlikely group of adult tappers as acclaimed British playwright Richard Harris take us on an evening of laughter, love and passion at a North London adult tap class.

 

Mavis, a former professional dancer, teaches the bumbling tappers but before the dancing she must mediate the dramas that erupt among this motley but loveable crew. When adversity, diversity, opportunity and ordinary come together, what is the result? A couple of time steps later and love and friendship are what really trumps this mix.
