Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope
Author(s): Mark Farrelly
Mark Farrelly (Jarman) brings his solo play to the King's Head, where Quentin Crisp himself gave his first stage performances in 1975.
From a conventional upbringing to global notoriety via The Naked Civil Servant, Quentin Crisp was one of the most memorable figures of the twentieth century. Openly gay as early as the 1930s, Quentin spent decades being beaten up on London’s streets for refusing to be anything less than himself.
