A sparkling new production of Loot – the classic farce, fifty years on. The talented and well-drilled cast tear into this absurdist comedy with a reckless pace and energy.
I’m not much of a fan of farce (my fault I fear…) and only really booked for two reasons. 1 – it’s on the list. And 2 – Sinéad Matthews, future queen of all our hearts.
The corpse is the talking point and to some extent the star. Certainly, Anah Ruddin, hopping out of the coffin spry as a fox for the curtain call.
Anniversary revival of Joe Orton’s black farce about money and death is a delight from start to finish.
