Entertaining Mr. Sloane
ENTERTAINING MR SLOANE
19 June - 14 July 2012
It may be Swinging 60s London, but out in dreary suburbia, middle-aged Kath is lonely and desperate. At the local library she meets ‘Mr Sloane' - a charming and beautiful young man - and invites him back home to take up residence in the spare room.
Soon Kath and her bachelor brother Ed, infatuated with the charismatic lodger, are vying for possession of his body while he manipulates their sexual greed to his own advantage. Only the suspicions of their father, Kemp, threaten this cosy set up - but it's nothing that can't be sorted.
Entertaining Mr Sloane is a delicious satire on society from the writer of Loot and What the Butler Saw. Orton playfully inverts the clichés of middle-class morality to create a brilliant queer comedy. It is a gloriously rebellious and anarchic romp: wickedly funny, sexily subversive and very, very naughty.
