From a conventional Surrey upbringing to global notoriety via “The Naked Civil Servant”, Quentin Crisp was an extraordinary raconteur and wit.
Following a UK tour and off-West End season at the St. James Theatre, this much-acclaimed production 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.
★★★★ ‘An uncanny feat of resurrection…Farrelly’s mastery of his audience is total’. TIME OUT
