Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

Wed 29 Sep • 7:30pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

Written and Performed by Mark Farrelly
Directed by Linda Marlowe

Fresh from its Off-Broadway debut and milestone 100th performance, Mark Farrelly’s hugely acclaimed solo play comes to The Rondo.

From a conventional upbringing to global notoriety via The Naked Civil Servant, Quentin Crisp was one of the most memorable figures of the twentieth century. Openly gay as early as the 1930s, Quentin spent decades being beaten up on London’s streets for his refusal to be anything less than himself. His courage, and the philosophy that evolved from those experiences, inspire to the present day. Naked Hope is a glorious, uplifting celebration of the urgent necessity for all of us to be our true selves.

Mark Farrelly’s West End credits include Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opposite Matthew Kelly. He is directed by EastEnders star Linda Marlowe (Berkoff’s Women).

★★★★ “Brilliant”  Time Out

★★★★ “A masterclass”  Broadway Baby

Dirty Bath

Wed 2 – Sat 5 & Wed 9 – Sat 12 Jun • 8pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

Presented by the Natural Theatre Company

The Natural Theatre Company’s joyous romp through unknown tales of the City of Bath is back by popular demand!

Bath is famous for its healing waters, beautiful Georgian architecture and wholesome countryside surroundings. The Romans loved it, the Georgians couldn’t get enough, and modern-day pleasure seekers still flock to the city for hen-dos, Christmas shopping and Bridgerton selfies.

Little do they know that, behind its beige façade, Bath is hiding a past that it is riddled with tales of debauchery, villainy and depravity. The Natural Theatre Company invite you to join them on a socially distanced voyage through Bath’s murkier waters as they throw a light on the less virtuous aspects of the city’s history. It won’t be plain sailing, but it will be very, very funny…. And you will have more room to relax and feel safe in the social distanced auditorium!

The Natural Theatre Company have been making people laugh for 50 years. An award-winning interactive theatre company born and bred in Bath; they produce delightfully comic, charmingly absurd performances guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone’s faces.

Please note: due to social distancing regulations, we are restricted to 50% of capacity, and the easiest way to do this in the Rondo is to sell every other seat. However, if you are from the same household, you are welcome to move along the row and sit together. We will be unable to open the bar for this production, so please feel free to bring your own refreshments (and please take your rubbish with you!). Dirty Bath lasts just over an hour, and is presented without an interval.

Please note that we have temporarily increased our theatre restoration levy from £1 to £1.50 per ticket, due to the coronovirus pandemic. This levy applies to all transactions, whether made in person at our Box Office, by post or by phone, for all payment types. Telephone bookings incur an additional £1.75 booking fee per transaction.

Nina’s young, single and ready to mingle! In fact, she gets up to quite a lot of mingling… sometimes a few times a week. With a plethora of dating apps available at the tap of a finger, hooking-up has never been easier. But when Nina encounters a guy with a rather… engorged… ego, their casual hook-up leads her down a path of introspection and unearths desires she never knew she had.
