Read about LOOT:
LOOT showcases the provacative playwright, Joe Orton, who has been hailed as equal parts Oscar Wilde, Monty Python and Quentin Tarantino. This biting British comedy spins a frenzied web of conspiracies fueled by greed, lust and hypocrisy. Set in England in the mid 1960's, LOOT follows the fortunes of two inept young thieves, a seductive and murderous nurse, and an unsuspecting, pious patriarch. Against the backdrop of a funeral, the thieves rob the bank next to the funeral parlor and return home to hide the money. Upon the arrival of a comically brutal and corrupt Inspector, the plot twists as the guilt-ridden group tries to keep them off their trail. Under the guise of a classical farce, and with language reminiscent of Wilde and George Bernard Shaw, Orton creates a hilariously sinister world, satirizing mid-twentieth century attitudes and perceptions. LOOT has been described as a 'masterpiece of black farce,' and is as stinging and funny today as when it was first spilled from the wicked pen of notorious English playwright Joe Orton.
