Entertaining Mr Sloane
by Joe Orton
Directed by Delyse Rostron
Saturday 9, Monday 11 to Saturday 16 May at 7.30 pm
in the Auditorium
Entertaining Mr Sloane was Joe Orton’s first success. Premiered in 1964, this challenging black comedy, containing adult themes, was staged in London and New York, winning awards on both sides of the Atlantic.
Mr Sloane is Kath’s new lodger. She is very excited but the Dadda is not so sure. And why is Kath’s brother Ed so suspicious? Who is the mysterious Mr Sloane? Is he really an orphan or is he taking advantage of good-natured Kath? Depicted in Orton’s darkly humorous, witty style, this play takes a hilarious look at one family’s unusual living arrangements.
Ticket Prices: All tickets are £8.50 with concession price of £7.00 for seniors, students and unemployed on first Saturday, Monday and Tuesday evenings only. Admin charges apply to online and postal bookings.
