Entertaining Mr. Sloane

Entertaining Mr. Sloane
21 February, 2009
Trafalgar Studios
Written by Joe Orton
Directed by Nick Bagnall

This is the first chance that I have had to ever see an Academy Award nominated actor or actress perform live. I must say that Imelda Staunton is a phenomenal actress on screen OR stage. She gave a very funny, disturbed, and touching performance in this play.

The play itself was very dark and very funny. It involves the story of a Mr. Sloane who rents a room from Kathy (played by Imelda Staunton). She is immediately attracted to him, but Mr. Sloane is not who he seems to be. He uses his charisma and charm to pit Kath and her brother against each other.
