A wickedly sharp peep behind closed doors Entertaining Mr Sloane by Joe Orton

19th - 23rd Mar 2024

Event info

Start Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: £16.00 Concessions: £13.50


Description

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!
