[edit] Information

An Arena programme from 1982 profiling the life and tragic death of playwright Joe Orton. Following his journey from Leicester to RADA, to West End success.

Featuring frank and comic contributions from Orton's sister and contemporaries (including a sharp-as-lemons Kenneth Williams), this fascinating profile charts his journey from stifling family life in Leicester to the West End via RADA and jail. The focus falls inevitably on his murder by lover Kenneth Halliwell, but there is more here than this horrific act. It's a glimpse into attitudes to homosexuality 25 years ago and a serious exploration of Orton's short life and career.
