Joe Orton’s breakthrough 60s play Entertaining Mr Sloane is to have a revival – hitting the London stage from January 2009.

Not just a play, also a superb movie (reviewed over at Cinedelica), Entertaining Mr Sloane revolves around Sloane (played by small screen mod Mathew Horne of Gavin & Stacey fame), who charms his way into the house of middle-aged spinster Kath (Imelda Staunton) and her gay brother Ed. Both compete for Sloane’s affections, leading to blackmail and eventually murder.

The English Touring Theatre production kicks off at Trafalgar Studios 1, 14 Whitehall Street, London SW1 2DY, running from 22nd January to 11th April 2009. Further details and tickets are available from the link below.
