Featuring Little Britain's Matt Lucas as Kenneth Halliwell, alongside Halliwell's eventual victim Joe Orton (Chris New), Prick up your Ears is a new play by Simon Bent, inspired by the John Lahr biography and the diaries of Joe Orton.
"1962. Halliwell and Orton - RADA graduates, aspiring writers, and sometime lovers - plot their rightful place at the center of London's literary scene whilst engaged in a secret crusade to "improve" the local library books, and acting out their own versions of popular radio dramas... But Joe is about to become the most notorious comic playwright since Oscar Wilde, whilst Ken is reduced to sharing Joe's success with their neighbour Mrs Corden over tea and battenburg."
