Stephen Fry To Marry Partner Elliott Spencer, 30 Years His Junior.

Fry and Spencer 1Is it just  me, or does this give you an uncomfortable feeling? You see, Stephen Fry is one of those lovely old establishment  national treasures, much like the Queen Mother, who it is said is nothing like he appears on the surface.

The wonderful Coleman Experience wrote this last year.

“Fry once wrote a play about paedophilia in schools:

Plans to stage a comedy penned by actor Stephen Fry about paedophilia in a public school were condemned today.

The award-winning play, which details a homosexual affair between a teacher and his 13-year-old pupil, is to be staged at Edinburgh’s Festival Fringe.

But Latin! Or Tobacco and Boys, billed as “a play in two unnatural acts”, has come under fire from a children’s charity and city councillors.

A theatre company is about to sign a contract to stage the comedy as part of the Fringe programme.

Cambridge-based Activated Image said the play celebrated “the love of a man for a 13-year-old boy”.

But the leisure and culture spokesman for Edinburgh’s Conservative Party, James Gilchrist, attacked it as “gratuitous smut”.

He said: “Stephen Fry’s contribution to the world of theatre could be written on the back of a postage stamp.

“What kind of person thinks that paedophilia is funny? Hopefully theatre-goers will have the good sense to give this a wide berth.”

Lorraine Gray, of charity Children 1st, said: “We work with young victims of abuse who have been scarred for life by their experiences.

“So we would be very concerned about any play that legitimises or trivialises the exploitation of young people by those in a position of trust.”

The play, set in a remote old-fashioned boys’ school, depicts a relationship between effete Latin teacher Dominic Clark and his star pupil.

Described as a “weird, wonderful and just a little twisted comedy”, the play, which Fry wrote as a Cambridge undergraduate in 1979, contains scenes of sadomasochism.”  Source

Of course, to be fair to Fry, “It’s all done in the name of art darling”.

Anyway, good luck to Stephen Fry and his 30 years younger fresh faced partner Elliott G Spencer. I hope things don’t turn sour when Stephen starts to lose his looks.
