Nicholas de Jongh - a camp old queen?
Evening Standard theatre critic Nicholas de Jongh didn't much care for Lone Star and Private Wars at the King's Head (till Sept 23) - starring Shane Richie as an ex-soldier who flashes passing women even though his "pecker" has been shot away - and Mick Jagger's luscious-lipped son James. Richie got his revenge on This Morning - "The critics love the play," he said, "except that camp old queen on the Standard. He can't stand me anyway." Normally I punish such homophobic utterances but on this occasion I shall compliment Richie on a certain degree of accuracy.
