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 the B-movie spoof, Women Behind Bars, written by Tom Eyen. David Campos, director of STAGES’ brilliant premiere last year, Rattlers, returns and holds all the keys as the ultimate warden of this cast filled with bad girls, and a couple bad boys.
Women Behind Bars tells the woeful tale of innocent Mary Eleanor who lands in the Women’s House of Detention in Greenwich Village after being framed. Poor Mary Eleanor faces sadism and the comedic horror that can only be found in a truly bad movie. They’re all innocent, just ask ’em.
