“A compilation of wit, wisdom and reminiscence, – a superb study of a style that represses sentiment” NEW YORK TIMES

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 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.

Starring five time Helpmann Award winner Paul Capsis as Crisp and directed by Green Room Award winner Gary Abrahams.
