AussieTheatre has two double passes to giveaway to Resident Alien at the Seymour Centre on July 14.
Direct from its’ season at Melbourne’s fortyfivedownstairs, the Seymour Centre is proud to present Paul Capsis as Quentin Crisp in Resident Alien, as part of The Reginald Season from 12-23rd July.
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.
Directed by Green Room Award winner Gary Abrahams, UK playwright Tim Fountain’s Resident Alien invites audiences into the legendary writer’s famously filthy New York apartment for an unforgettable heart-to-heart about life as only he knows it. Oprah Winfrey, Princess Diana, oral s*x – no topic is off limits as Quentin explains, in his inimitable way, how to be happy.
“He was THE prototype androgynous man,” says Capsis. “Before Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Liberace, Reg Livermore, before the times we could categorise or describe a person as transgender or sexually ambiguous, there was Quentin.”
From his AFI award nominated role in Head On, to his recent appearance in the Sydney Theatre Company and Malthouse Theatre’s Calpurnia Descending, Capsis has forged a remarkable career playing with androgyny. In Resident Alien, he relishes the opportunity to pay tribute to a personal hero.
Competition closes July 6 at 6pm AEST. Winners will be contacted via email/phone.
