Loot

AURORA CLASSIC



STARTS APR 3, 2020


By Joe Orton  |   Directed By Tom Ross


Hailed as a masterpiece of black comedy farce, Loot follows the fortunes of two young thieves in swinging 60s London. Dennis works for an undertaker and Hal’s old Mum has just died. Having robbed a bank, the lads need a place to stash the loot and Mum’s coffin seems like the perfect place – but where to stash poor Mum? Playing roughhouse with the conventions of popular farce, Orton creates a world gone mad, hilariously examining hypocritical mores still percolating in our current time.

“...comic time bomb going off exactly on schedule and obliterating all in its radius with outlandish entertainment.”
