Written by Joe Orton
Directed by Sean Ryan

MFA director Sean Ryan tackles Joe Orton’s masterpiece of dark farce.  Set in London in 1965, the story revolves around the members of the McLeavy family and the events surrounding the death and subsequent burial of the family matriarch. As Mr. McLeavy grieves his wife's passing, his son Hal schemes to hide the profits of a bank job he has just pulled off with his sometime boyfriend, Dennis.

As outrageous as it is entertaining, Loot’s hilarious depiction of a world gone mad displays Orton's talent at its subversive best.
