|Based on Williams own diaries, this heartbreaking drama portrayed the life of the well loved British actor and star of the the ‘Carry On’ films.
From the intimacy of his diaries and other sources, Fantabulosa! creates a portrait of a fastidious performer who hankered after recognition, adulation and companionship throughout his career. Yet although he could create a thousand voices and characters, he was unable to live comfortably within his own skin. Kenneth led a life full of mental torture as he tried to overcome his homosexuality in 1950s Britain.
It seemed only one person disliked him – himself.
He also suffered from chronic stomach problems, and was found in his home dead from an overdose of painkillers.
