Post Loot at Theatre in the Round 
I'm very much looking forward to seeing this show. Tonight only there's a special preview price of $5!

Theatre in the Round presents:

Joe Orton's "Loot"
directed by Terry Lynn Carlson
January 5th - 28th.
Friday's and Saturday's @ 8pm, Sunday's 2pm.


About this show:

“...quick-witted, pungent & sprightly entertainment.” - SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

Hal and his friend Dennis have robbed a bank next door to a funeral parlor and decide to stash the loot in what they think is an ideal hiding place — the coffin of Hal’s recently-departed mother. To make room for the cash, though, they must discreetly dispatch Mum’s remains to a wardrobe cabinet — at least for starters. Further complications ensue as the tediously tenacious Inspector Truscott comes to call; ill luck befalls the coffin; and Mum keeps getting in the way. Through it all, the increasingly desperate lads struggle to keep their cool and not leave any incriminating details hanging.

Called a “Freudian Nightmare” and a masterpiece of macabre farce, LOOT is a wild-eyed parody of detective fiction that flicks wicked barbs at conventions of death, religion, and justice. Forty years after its premiere, it remains one of the most indelible works from the scandalous pen of Joe Orton.

Went to see this last night.

It's a very fun, wildly funny show. If you like British comedy and farce, definitely make it a point to check it out.

Here's a great review of the show from the star tribune.

(by the way, the woman he quotes at the end of the review is yours truly. I happened to be sitting right behind the reviewer that night. HA!)
