If you and your buddy pulled a heist and need a place to hide the cash, you’d better pray for a dead relative. That’s the way robbers Dennis and Hal play it in Loot by Joe Orton. The two men stash their spoils in Mom’s coffin. Director Aaron Worley says the dark comedy, which first premiered in 1965, sparkles with snappy wit that still draws laughs from modern audiences. Toss in a gold-digging nurse, a corrupt inspector and a cadaver that keeps popping up around the house, and a fortune of farce unfolds.
