ORIGINAL NOVEL The Naked Civil Servant by Quentin Crisp

Venue – Bridport Art Centre 

Based on Quentin Crisp’s 1968 autobiography, The Naked Civil Servant stars John Hurt as Crisp, an outrageous flamboyant gay man who publicly declared his homosexuality during the brutally homophobic and misogynistic England of the 1930s and ’40s — a time when this being homosexual was still an offense punishable by imprisonment in Great Britain. The film made for British and American public television broadcasts tells of Crisp’s coming of age and growing into old age in conservative England.
