"a highly enjoyable and stimulating night’s theatre that fully lives up to the People’s Theatre’s enduring reputation for excellence" - Theatre Baby


Joe Orton’s hilarious and wickedly sharp black comedy sees sly and handsome Mr Sloane rent a room from lonely widow Kath.

As Kath and her controlling brother Ed vie for the shady young lodger’s attention, he thinks he has them wrapped around his little finger.

But soon Mr Sloane finds himself entangled in a dangerous game of sex, desire, blackmail and violence.

In its day, this provocative satire on social and sexual hypocrisy stirred up much controversy. And it still has the power to shock as a deliciously mischievous and bitingly funny peep behind closed doors in the swinging sixties!


Content guidance: the play contains scenes of a sexual nature, violence, references to sexual assault, and includes dated language which may cause offense. An e-cigarette is briefly smoked on stage.


This amateur production of “Entertaining Mr Sloane” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk
