Has Joe Orton’s subversive humour survived beyond the ‘Swinging Sixties’? As the current mini Orton festival continues this week with the West End opening of Entertaining Mr Sloane, Michael Coveney asks comedy stars Kathy Burke, Mathew Horne and Doon Mackichan if Orton still pricks up their ears in Sloane and Loot.
Actor Matt Di Angelo was most recently seen in BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing, followed by a live national arena tour. His previous screen credits include playing Deano Wicks in EastEnders for two years, I Dream, Project C, There’s a Viking in My Bed and Harbour Lights. He’s currently making his stage debut as Hal in Sean Holmes’ new production of Joe Orton’s Loot at the Tricycle Theatre, alongside David Haig, Doon Mackichan, Javone Prince, James Hayes and Jim Creighton.
