Loot

Joe Orton’s British farce holds up very well after over fifty years. Lord Chamberlain censored parts of the play because of how skewered the government. The Odyssey production mines the laugh beautifully. The British accents are believable. The timing impeccable. Well worth a revisit to this classic Oscar Wilde like play.
