Iz Wikipedije, slobodne enciklopedije

John Kingsley ("Joe") Orton (Leicester, 1. januar 1933Islington, London, 9. august, 1967.) bio je engleski dramatičar, čiju su opus obilježile zapažene crne komedije kojima je skandalizirana publika 1960-ih. Život i karijeru mu je obilježila homoseksualna veza s glumcem Kennethom Halliwellom koji ga je 1967. ubio u nastupu ljubomore.

Ortonov život je godine 1978. opisao John Lahr u knjizi Prick Up Your Ears na temelju koje je Stephen Frears 1987. režirao igrani film s Garyjem Oldmanom u ulozi Ortona.
