Matt Lucas to ‘Prick Up Your Ears’

'Little Britain' star will play Joe Orton's lover

Matt Lucas (“Little Britain”) will co-star in the West End bow of “Prick Up Your Ears,” Simon Bent’s legit adaptation of John Lahr’s biography of playwright Joe Orton.

Lucas plays Orton’s lover Kenneth Halliwell opposite Chris New as Orton in the show, which takes its inspiration from the Lahr bio and Orton’s diaries rather than the 1987 pic of the same name.

Daniel Kramer helms the play, produced by Sonia Friedman Prods., Kim Poster for Stanhope Prods. and Lee Menzies.

“Prick” is set to play the West End’s Comedy Theater Sept. 17-Dec. 6.
