Playing in the Long Beach Playhouse’s Studio Theater
June 8 – July 6, 2024
By Joe Orton
Directed by Allen Sewell

The bank next to the funeral parlour has been robbed! LOOT is Joe Orton’s masterpiece of dark comedy where we follow the fortunes of two young thieves – Dennis, an undertaker at the funeral parlour, and Hal, his sometime lover, whose Mum just died. When Inspector Truscott turns up, they need a place to hide the loot.  But with the money in Mum’s coffin, there’s no place for Mum, whose body keeps reappearing at the most inopportune times. Aided and abetted by Mum’s former nurse, Fay, and trying to put one over on Hal’s gullible father, the duo prove that nothing is sacred in a farce that seethes with black, baleful mirth.

LBP’s Opening Night Gala for LOOT is sponsored by the Port of Long Beach! A BIG THANK YOU to the Port!
