JD Productions presents
JOE & KEN
written and directed by John Dunne
A comedy with attitude!
60's playwright Joe Orton and his partner Ken Halliwell act out their past, present and future in a dingy Islington flat, and later, in a Tangiers apartment.
Full of poignancy and humour, the play explores the couple’s increasing frustration and depression which will lead to their untimely and tragic deaths.
The play is loosely based on biographies, Joe’s own plays and diaries augmented by original information from local historians and people who knew “the boys”.
WHAT THE PRESS SAY (2003)
