About Loot

Mrs McLeavy has passed away. She is lying in a coffin in a small room waiting for the hearse to take her remains to the funeral. She had been ill for some time and the live-in nurse, Fay McMahon, now comforts the bereaved McLeavy with a suggestion of re-marriage – to her! McCleavy’s son, Hal, with his friend Dennis, has robbed the bank next door to the Funeral Parlour where Dennis works. Truscott, a Police Inspector, enters claiming to be an ‘employee of the Water Board’ but is really trying to find the ‘loot’, the stolen money, which at some point gets hidden in Mrs McLeavy’s coffin! Joe Orton’s wonderfully black and anarchic comedy ‘Loot’. Outrageous and shocking, Orton’s satire on social and sexual convention scandalised theatre audiences when it was first performed in the mid 1960’s. It still shocks today.
