About Entertaining Mr Sloane

It may be the Swinging '60s in London but out in the suburbs, behind closed doors, Kath is lonely. Craving love and affection, Kath and her bachelor brother take a lodger. Soon, both become infatuated with the shady young tenant with a murky past - Mr Sloane.

Oscar-nominee Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake, Cranford, Shakespeare in Love] and Mathew Horne (BAFTA award-winning Gavin and Stacey, The Catherine Tate Show) star in Joe Orton's fiendishly dark comedy.

Originally staged in 1964, Joe Orton's wickedly biting comedy sparked controversy with its mischievous peep at the hypocrisy behind the ‘new' permissive society of the 1960s and the British fascination with sex.
