Revelation Readings: Crimes Of Passion

Staged readings of two of Joe Orton’s marvelous works

Confirming his talent for fusing farce and ferocity, Joe Orton’s two plays (The Ruffian On The Stair and The Erpingham Camp) will be performed by The Red Bull Theater, with an emphasis on the playwright’s trademark affinity for biting cynicism. The two plays are thoroughly Ortonesque – they make light of religion’s intricacies and feature a stable of kooky characters (sexually ambiguous intruder, ex-boxer thug, Protestant ex-prostitute). It’s the kind of thing you need to see to believe. Best available reserved seating allocated by the venue on arrival.
