"When the young, good-looking Joe Orton encounters the older, more reclusive Kenneth Halliwell at drama school, he helps the allied spirit and they begin an affair. As Joe becomes more contented with his sexuality and commences to find achievement with his writing, Kenneth becomes progressively estranged and envious, eventually tapping into a hazardous anger. This is the story of British playwright Joe Orton in Stephen Frearsโ€™ tragi-comedy-drama charting his doomed relationship with his lover "
