Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

  • Brasserie Zedel (Live at Zedel) 20 Sherwood Street London, England, W1F 7ED United Kingdom (map)

Much-acclaimed 70-minute solo play about the life of Quentin Crisp. Openly gay as early as the 1930s, Quentin spent decades being beaten up on London’s streets simply for his refusal to be anything less than himself. His steadfast courage, and the powerful philosophy that evolved from those experiences, continue to inspire to the present day. "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 true self.

It's performed by Mark Farrelly, whose West End credits include "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" at Trafalgar Studios. Doing two special performances in central London to celebrate Pride as part of a UK tour. Will be holding a collection for Pride at the end of both performances. Previous collections have totalled several thousand pounds.
