Mr Sloane reaches his half-century

Joe Orton’s wickedly comic play Entertaining Mr Sloane completes its run at Derby Theatre this week, continuing until Saturday, June 14.

It is being performed by London Classic Theatre.

Kath and her elderly father live in a house on the outskirts of a rubbish dump.

Their drab existence is interrupted by the arrival of a new lodger, the enigmatic Mr Sloane.

The provocative Sloane soon has them both competing for his favours.

Tickets are £10.50-£25.50. Call the box office on 01332 593939.
