We Have Our Perfect Venue
Having looked at a number of theatre spaces around Brighton, we’re delighted to have chosen The Lantern Theatre as our venue for 'The Ruffian on the Stair'. This intimate theatre in the heart of Brighton is perfect for the atmosphere we wish to create for Orton’s deadly serious comedy. Conveniently located in Rock Place, Kemp Town, a pebble’s throw from the pier, it is right in the centre of all the Fringe action and close to the Spiegeltent. They have a great bar on-site so you can enjoy a drink before and after the performances and they are very lovely people too.

Blue Devil will be presenting Joe Orton’s 'Ruffian on the Stair' as our 2017 production. It will be premiered at Brighton Fringe.
Orton first wrote this play whilst serving six months in prison for defacing library books. It was originally conceived for the stage, but become his first produced play via BBC Radio. However, Orton was never happy with the broadcast and radically reworked it for staging at The Royal Court Theatre in 1967. The strict confines of what was acceptable at the BBC left behind.
Our production will mark not only the 50th anniversary of that event, but also the 50th anniversary of Orton’s murder by his partner, Kenneth Halliwell.
