Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

02nd July 2017


02nd July 2017

Quentin Crisp was one of the most memorable figures of the twentieth century. Naked Hope depicts Quentin at two phases of his life: alone in the 1960’s and thirty years later, during his legendary An Evening with Quentin Crisp.

Mark Farrelly's hit solo show returns to the West End again for Pride in London.

★★★★ "Brilliant...Farrelly's mastery of his audience is total" Time Out

Naked Hope depicts Quentin at two phases of his extraordinary life: alone in his Chelsea flat in the 1960s, stoically certain that life has passed him by (“I’ve come to the end of my personality”) and thirty years later, giving a performance of his legendary one-man show An Evening with Quentin Crisp in New York. Packed with witty gems on everything from cleaning (“Don’t bother…after the first four years the dirt won’t get any worse”) to marriage (“Is there life after marriage? The answer is no”), Naked Hope is a gloriously uplifting celebration of the urgent necessity to be yourself.

The performance is in support of Galop, London's leading anti-LGBT hate crime charity, and London Gay Pride 2017. Copies of the newly-published script of Naked Hope will be available after the performance.
