LOOT

by Joe Orton

Thu 28 Sep 2017 - Sat 21 Oct 2017

Presented by Tom O’Connell, James Seabright (producers of sell-out hit The Boys in the Band) and The Watermill Theatre in association with King’s Head Theatre and Park Theatre

Uproarious slapstick meets dubious morals as two young friends stash the proceeds of a bank robbery in an occupied coffin, attempting to hide their spoils from the attentions of a psychopathic policeman, a gold-digging nurse and a grieving widower.

A darkly comic masterpiece, Joe Orton’s classic farce Loot shocked and delighted audiences in equal measure when the play premiered five decades ago, winning the Evening Standard Best Play award.

This fiftieth anniversary co-production starts at Park Theatre, London before its run at The Watermill and is directed by Michael Fentiman, whose credits include acclaimed productions of Titus Andronicus and The Taming of The Shrew for the Royal Shakespeare Company.

‘Loot spirals inventively into the higher reaches of preposterousness, false reasoning and sheer lunacy. A delectable amusement.’ Evening Standard
