Description

Adapted from his best-selling autobiography, THE NAKED CIVIL SERVANT tells the coming-of-age story of Quentin Crisp, a homosexual trying to live an openly flamboyant and gay lifestyle in the intolerant pre-war years. It is easy to see why Crisp is considered by some to be the 20th century's equ­ivalent of Oscar Wilde, but it's his unflinching desire not to compromise his lifestyle to suit the conventions of society that makes this play by turns funny, tragic and heartwarming.

Critic Reviews:

  • " It is well that Hurt's performance is preserved on film, for it is an extraordinary achievement. " – Charles Faber (Los Angeles Free Press)
  • " The Naked Civil Servant is camp and unabashedly so – but it has far more going on beneath the surface, and helped usher in more nuanced portrayals of LGBT people and culture in the years to come. " – Alistair Ryder (Gay Essential)
  • " Thanks to Hurt's extraor­dinary performance – soft-skinned, red-lipped and determined to fight politely for his rights – it still seems relevant and not just an exercise in nostalgia. " – Kate Muir (Times, UK)
