Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope, playing at the St James Studio

St James hosts Quentin Crisp transfer

Published 3 July 2014

A new one-man play exploring the life of Quentin Crisp will arrive at the St James Studio in August, directly after its world premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope, which is written and performed by Mark Farrelly, will run at the Victoria venue from 28 August to 7 September.

Set both in the 1970s Chelsea flat of Crisp, who rose to fame through his autobiography The Naked Civil Servant and the televised version of it, and in New York, where he spent his final years, Farrelly’s play draws on Crisp’s writing to create a picture of the writer and performer who resolutely refused to conform.

Directed by the award-winning Linda Marlowe (Berkoff’s Women), Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope plays in the St James Studio as the One Stage season of plays begins in the venue’s larger St James Theatre. The season, supported by theatrical charity Stage One, which supports new and emerging producers, brings together Ben Ockrent’s latest play Breeders, Anya Reiss’ new version of Uncle Vanya and Emlyn Williams’ Accolade.
