Joe Orton’s Loot, first performed in 1966, is a fast moving farce, highly indelicate and outrageously funny, which revolves around the proceeds of a bank robbery – the loot in question. There is also the forthcoming funeral of a wife and mother which is disrupted by the son, Hal, and his accomplice, Dennis, who utilise the coffin for more than the body.

Into this maelstrom steps Truscott, a police officer of uncertain probity, insisting he is from the Water Board as the Water Board doesn’t need a warrant to search people’s homes.

This is the next Goring Gap Players’ production, at Goring Village Hall from Wednesday 20th March through Saturday 23rd March – and will bring a taste of the swinging 60s to Goring and Streatley. A world which was discovering a lack of respect for authority, new ways of seeing opportunities – and discovering freedoms to do so many more things. Most of which are explored in Loot.

Is Goring and Streatley ready for all this yet?
