It may be Swinging ’60s London, but in suburbia, middle-aged Kath is lonely and desperate. She meets the charming ‘Mr Sloane’ and invites him to live in her spare room. Soon Kath and her brother Ed are vying for their houseguest’s affections, even as he manipulates their feelings for his own advantage. Entertaining Mr Sloane, Joe Orton’s first play, is at New Theatre in Newtown, Sydney until July 14.
