About the Author

Joe Orton (1933-1967) was an English playwright noted for his black comedies, which combine genteel dialogue with violent and shocking action. He delighted in shocking audiences by breaking taboos surrounding sexuality and death in conventionally structured 'black' farces involving epigrammatic dialogue and frenetic, convoluted plots. His plays include Entertaining Mr Sloane (1964), Loot (1965) and What the Butler Saw (1969).

Emma Parker is based at the University of Leicester where she specialises in post-war British literature and contemporary fiction, particularly women's writing. Her research focuses on issues relating to gender and sexuality, feminism and queer theory. Dr Parker is also responsible for the Orton Archive at the University of Leicester.
