First, we look at Fatal Attraction.
Fatal Attraction became the highest box office grossing film worldwide in 1987 and now it is being taken to the stage.
Based on the classic film, original screen writer James Dearden’s stage version of Fatal Attraction, brings the definitive movie thriller to the UK stage and features British pop and Coronation Street, star Kym Marsh as the iconic bunny boiler opposite soap star Oliver Farnworth as Dan Gallagher, no stranger to coming to a sticky end as Coronation Street fans will know.
Next, delve into the life of Quentin Crisp.
Going back even further, it’s been 47 years since John Hurt brought to the attention of the nation stately homo, Quentin Crisp in Jack Gold’s brilliant TV film The Naked Civil servant. Crisp was plucked from obscurity into international celebrity and notoriety by that film based on his own 1968 book.
Fresh from its Off-Broadway debut, Mark Farrelly’s hugely acclaimed solo play Naked Hope is now coming to Eastbourne’s Grove Theatre as part of Gay History month.
Naked Hope depicts Quentin at two phases of his extraordinary life: alone in his Chelsea flat in the 1960s, confident that life has passed him by, and thirty years later, giving a performance of his one man show An Evening with Quentin Crisp in New York. Packed with witty gems on everything from cleaning to marriage Naked Hope is a glorious, uplifting celebration of the urgent necessity to be your true self.
