Begin your London Pride weekend in the company of queer icon Quentin Crisp as channeled through acclaimed writer and performer Mark Farrelly.
Fresh from his triumphant Off-Broadway debut and recent 100th performance, Mark Farrelly brings his solo play to Crazy Coqs for a special show to celebrate Pride In London.
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 the streets of London 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.
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.
Naked Hope is written & performed by Mark Farrelly, and directed by Linda Marlowe.
The details: Live at Zédel The Crazy Coqs, Friday 5th July 7pm. For more information and to book tickets head to the Brasserie Zédel website.
