Entertaining Mr Sloane
Terrific. Superb. Exuberantly funny.
Olivier Award nomination for Best Actress 2010
(Imelda Staunton in Entertaining Mr Sloane)
It may be swinging 60s 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), starred in Joe Orton’s fiendishly dark comedy for a strictly limited West End season at the Trafalgar Studios.
A cracking new production. Wonderfully, mercilessly funny
