Sharp, alarming and hilarious, Entertaining Mr Sloane is an English black comedy of unscrupulous sexual manipulation.
Orton tells the mischievously provocative story of Mr Sloane, a sly and handsome young man who works his way into the household of Kath, her brother Ed, and their father Kemp. The play soon becomes a shameless and unnerving tangle of sex, blackmail, bribery and violence.
Entertaining Mr. Sloane was Orton’s first full-length play. It was first staged in 1964.
