Yahay! We have a winner.
As part of our fabulous London Theatre Week celebration, we teamed up with LDN, London’s coolest tweetspot, to offer a pair of tickets up for grabs for the first night of the new play, Prick Up Your Ears.
And thanks to those of you who sent us your lovely tweets.
Without any further ado, I’m pleased to announce the identity of the winner….it’s @webcowgirl – congratulations, you’re off to the show.
The play starts a West End run on September 17 for a limited period at The Comedy Theatre, Panton Street.
Matt Lucas plays murderous lover Kenneth Halliwell alongside Chris New as playwright Joe Orton and Gwen Taylor as Mrs Corden, in the Daniel Kramer production of Prick Up Your Ears, a new play by Simon Bent inspired by the John Lahr biography and The Diaries of Joe Orton.
About the play: It’s 1962. Halliwell and Orton – RADA graduates, aspiring writers, and sometime lovers – plot their rightful place at the centre 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.
This darkly funny and moving play imagines the sensational story behind Joe and Ken’s domestic life, trading well-trodden insults and hilarious put-downs like any old married couple.
