Following the success of Park Theatre’s sell-out hit The Boys in the Band, the producers have now announced the 50th anniversary production of Joe Orton’s darkly-comic classic farce Loot.

Directed by Michael Fentiman, the production begins previews on 17 August, with an official opening night on 23 August, playing through to 24 September, 2017.

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.
