Entertaining Mr Sloane was first staged in 1964. Despite its success in performance, and being hailed by Sir Terence Rattigan as 'the best first play' he'd seen in 'thirty odd years', it was not until the London production of Loot in 1966 - less than a year before Joe Orton's untimely death - that theatre audiences and critics began to more fully appreciate the originality of Orton's elegant, alarming and hilarious writing. Introduced by John Lahr, the author of Orton's biography Prick up Your Ears, Entertaining Mr Sloane is now established as an essential part of the repertoire of the modern theatre.

Review:

Entertaining Mr Sloane retains its power to provoke and startle. --Telegraph

Unlike many scandals, both Entertaining Mr Sloane and its protagonist reach their majority with impact undiminished . . . Mr Sloane has moved with the times. --Financial Times

About the Author:

Joe Orton (1933-1967) was an English playwright noted for his black comedies, which combine genteel dialogue with violent and shocking action. He delighted in shocking audiences by breaking taboos surrounding sexuality and death in conventionally structured 'black' farces involving epigrammatic dialogue and frenetic, convoluted plots. His plays include Entertaining Mr Sloane (1964), Loot (1965) and What the Butler Saw (1969).

Emma Parker is based at the University of Leicester where she specialises in post-war British literature and contemporary fiction, particularly women's writing. Her research focuses on issues relating to gender and sexuality, feminism and queer theory. Dr Parker is also responsible for the Orton Archive at the University of Leicester.
