An Englishman in New York gives rise to an instant link to that Sting classic.

Well in this case it is actually An Englishman in New York ... via Hemel Hemel Hempstead!

That’s because this funny, new show about the original Englishman in New York is coming to The Old Town Hall on Saturday and it’s direct from the West End – Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope.

Seabright Productions presents the show which is written and performed by Mark Farrelly and directed by Linda Marlowe.

From a conventional Surrey upbringing to international notoriety via The Naked Civil Servant, Quentin Crisp was an extraordinary raconteur and wit.

This new solo performance shows Quentin both in his beloved Chelsea flat as the 1970s dawned, and in his final years in his adopted New York, with the new millennium beckoning.

This first UK tour follows the show’s premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014 and recent London run.

The show is suitable for anyone aged 14 or over and takes place on Saturday (November 15 at 8pm).

Tickets cost £12, £10 concession, £9 Dacorum Card, £5 UpStaged.
