Alec Baldwin, Chris Carmack, Richard Easton and Jan Maxwell star in the Off Broadway production of Joe Orton's Entertaining Mr. Sloane, directed by Roundabout Associate Artistic Director Scott Ellis.
Joe Orton's classic dark comedy centers on a handsome stranger with a secret, his libidinous landlady, her gender-bending brother and geriatric father. Kath's language may be prim but her intentions are blatant when she picks up Mr. Sloane and takes him in as a lodger. Attractive, mischievous and dangerous, Sloane eventually has Kath, her brother Ed and their father Kemp eating out of his hand as they all compete for his favors. Together they play out a sexual tug of war, sparking a series of murderously funny events in this survival of the fittest power struggle where they will resort to anything to get what they want.
