Media: Inside Publishing - Prick up your ears
Monday 19 January 1998
Fred and Madge, Orton's first play, dating from 1959, and The Visitors, a work from 1961, are to be published in one volume by Nick Hern Books in May. The Boy Hairdresser, from 1960, is a novel written jointly by Orton and his lover Kenneth Halliwell, who later bludgeoned him to death at their Islington flat. That is scheduled for the autumn. And in spring 1999 come two novellas, which NHB will publish in one volume: Lord Cucumber, another Orton/Halliwell collaboration, this time from 1964, and Between Us Girls, Orton's solo debut from 1957. All pre-date his celebrated stage debut with Entertaining Mr Sloane while Lord Cucumber is informed by Orton's 1962 sojourn at Her Majesty's pleasure for defacing library books.
