Prick Up Your Ears continues to play at the Comedy Theatre with Michael Chadwick playing the role of Kenneth Halliwell.
Prick Up Your Ears – a darkly funny and moving play imagines what really happened when, after years of creative collaboration, the door slammed shut and Kenneth was home alone. It tells the sensational story behind the domestic life of Joe Orton and Kenneth Halliwell, holed up in a tiny flat in Islington, trading well-trodden insults and hilarious put-downs like any old married couple.
