Loot (Comedy)


Joe Orton


Blackburn Empire Theatre


22-25 September, 2021


Blackburn Dram Club return with Joe Orton’s classic farce “LOOT”. 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.
The ensuing black comedy shocked and delighted audiences in equal measure when the play premiered five decades ago, winning the Evening Standard Best Play award.
We can’t wait to welcome you back to the theatre for an evening of laughter with this outrageous comedy that’s as relevant today as the day it was written.
