Resident Alien

Date: 15 May 2018

From his early years as an androgynous nude model in 1930’s London, to finding fame as the first to speak so openly about life as a gay man, there was no-one quite like Quentin Crisp.

In Tim Fountain’s Resident Alien, the legendary author of The Naked Civil Servant opens the door to his famously filthy New York apartment for a heart to heart about life as only he knows it.

Oprah Winfrey, Princess Diana, oral sex – no topic is off limits as Quentin explains, in his inimitable way, how to be happy.

Paul Capsis stars in a production first seen in 2016, “a complete and seductively seedy package” (SMH) directed by Gary Abrahams.
