The Edge of the Universe Players 2 Announces Its Fall 2015 Production, Entertaining Mr Sloane by Joe Orton

Runs November 21 through December 13, 2015

It’s the Swinging Sixties in London’s West End, but Kath and her elderly father, Kemp, live in a house on the outskirts of a rubbish dump. Their drab existence is interrupted by the arrival of a new lodger, the handsome and enigmatic Mr Sloane. Provocative and sexually ambiguous, Sloane soon has both Kath and her brother Ed competing for his sexual favors. Entertaining Mr Sloane is a dark comedy of people desperately searching for love, weaving a tangle of lust, deceit and violence in its place. The first major production by the taboo-breaking British playwright Joe Orton, Sloane premiered in London in 1964. It won the 1982 Drama Desk Award for Best Revival and the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Revival in 1996. Orton died in 1967.

Directed by Stephen Jarrett. Featuring Matthew McGee as Sloane, Jim Jorgensen as Ed, Jjana Valentiner as Kath and David Bryan Jackson as Kemp.

“Entertaining Mr Sloane" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC., and will be performed at The Writer’s Center in Bethesda
