An upside-down corpse, a bank robbery and an unhinged police inspector make up Loot, an edgy, quick-witted farce about greed from playwright Joe Orton (What the Butler Saw). The acclaimed 1966 black comedy follows the (mis)fortunes of two young thieves, Hal and Dennis, who have robbed a bank and hidden out in Hal's home with the loot. Hal's mother has just died, so they put the money in her coffin, hiding the body elsewhere. When police inspector Truscott arrives to investigate, havoc and hilarity ensue. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
STAGEStheatre presents At the Arches, written and directed by Terry McNicol. STAGES has a well-known penchant to produce original works by local playwrights. McNicol, a long-time contributor at STAGEStheatre, returns with a new piece set at Newport Pier that regales the reunion of three friends who declare that the worst day fishing is better than the best day working.
A peaceful reunion at a favorite fishing spot turns into “The Fishermen vs. The Elks”— Elks Club, that is. Several STAGES regulars grace the stage along with a few new faces. Don’t miss the hilarious array of Newport Beach characters who live their lives At the Arches.
