Resident Alien by Tim Fountain

Following an acclaimed sell-out season in 2016, the extraordinary Paul Capsis returns to fortyfivedownstairs in his Green Room nominated role as legendary raconteur Quentin Crisp. From his early years as an androgynous nude model in 1930s 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 an unforgettable 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. Directed by Green Room Award winner Gary Abrahams and Produced by Cameron Lukey (the team behind Angels in America), this strictly limited season kicks off a tour, so don’t miss Capsis’ astonishing performance.
