It is the swinging 1960s and sexy, cocksure, charismatic young Mr Sloane is looking for a place to live. Middle-aged Kath offers herself as his landlady but is also offering something else. Her younger brother Ed is also looking for some action but their elderly and inquisitive father is unfortunately in the way.
Entertaining Mr Sloane is a sleek, dark and sexy comedy written by one of Britain’s most notorious playwrights – Leicester’s own Joe Orton, and was his first full-length play establishing him as one of the most significant wiriters of stage farce in the twentieth century. This wickedly funny, and sometimes violent play caused a stir when it first opened in London during the age of the sexual revolution. The play has gone on to win many awards with revivals worldwide. Orton’s other works include Loot and What The Butler Saw in an explosive and successful career cut short by his untimely and violent death in 1967.
This Curve Production is directed by Artistic Director Paul Kerryson, whose previous play sinclude Absurd Person Singular, Dolly West’s Kitchen, The Pillowman, starring Marc Warren, The Lieutenant of Inishmore both by Martin McDonagh.
