Entertaining Mr. Sloane

Entertaining Mr. Sloane

“Mr Sloane .........You should wear more clothes Mr Sloane, I believe you are as naked as me.”

A landlady and her brother entice a psychopathic young man into sexual liaisons. Witty, sharp, alarming and hilarious, “Entertaining Mr Sloane” is a subversive black comedy of unscrupulous sexual manipulation.

Joe Orton tells the provocative story of Mr Sloane, a sly and handsome young man who works his way into the household of Kath, her brother Ed, and their father. Kath wants something between a lover and a substitute baby, while Ed wants someone to drive his car dressed in a tight t-shirt and a leather cap.  The charismatic Mr Sloane thinks that he can play a good game with both brother and sister vying for his attention, but he quickly finds he is drawn into a shameless and unnerving tangle of sex, blackmail, bribery and violence. Not that he minds of course!

Entertaining Mr Sloane was Orton’s first full-length play. It was first staged in 1964.

Produced by The Play's the Thing.
