Quentin Crisp Naked Hope

Written and performed by Mark Farrelly Directed by Linda Marlowe

From a conventional 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 for his refusal to be anything less than himself. His courage, and the powerful philosophy that evolved from those experiences, inspire to the present day.

This much-acclaimed solo play, following an off-West End season and recent appearance off-Broadway, shows Quentin in his beloved Chelsea flat in the 1960s, and in his final years in his adopted New York.

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 real self…no matter what they say.

Mark Farrelly’s West End credits include Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? opposite Matthew Kelly. He is directed by EastEnders star Linda Marlowe (Berkoff’s Women).
