Items of Interest in the Programme:

As a playgoer of forty years may I sincerely agree with Peter Pinnell in his condemnation of Entertaining Mr Sloane. I myself was nauseated by this endless parade of mental and physical perversion. And to be told that such a disgusting piece of theatre now passes as humour. This was actually written Joe Orton himself, fanning the scandal of his first produced play.
