Friendship

Joe Orton satirized the nasty secrets behind middle class propriety in such classics as What the Butler Saw and Loot. This is his story the tale of a scruffy, poorly educated lad and an older man who saw in him the soul and talent of a comic poet. Orton and Halliwell lived a bohemian existence until they were arrested for playfully defacing library books. Afterward, their relationship deteriorated as Orton's star began to rise. Halliwell's resentment was so consuming that he killed Orton and himself. The acclaimed author of Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, Back County Crimes and The Insanity of Mary Girard tells their story with humor and compassion, creating a play that could have been written by Orton himself.
