Joe Orton’s black comedy, Entertaining Mr Sloane, comes to Stantonbury

The Play’s The Thing Theatre Company present the subversive comedy from 1-3 November 2018


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 story of Mr Sloane, 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 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 stars Colin Jeffery as Kemp, Davin Eadie as Ed, Lisa Stenhouse as Kath and Richard Galloway as Mr Sloane.

Entertaining Mr Sloane heads to Stantonbury Theatre from 1- 3 November 2018, 7.30pm
Tickets £16 and £14 (concs). www.stantonburyttheatre.co.uk or 01908 324466
