Description:

New York. 1968. Grove Press. 1st Printing. Very Good In Wrappers. 21. 87 pages. E-470. paperback. Cover photo by Bert Andrews. keywords: January 1. inventory # 10486. FROM THE PUBLISHER - LOOT is a scathing attack on money, the police, the Catholic Church, and several other of our sacred institutions. In a front parlor, the principal object of which is a coffin, Mr. Orton has constructed a Wildean drawing-room comedy of the blackest hue. The corpse in the coffin, who is the mother of a young bank robber, is dumped upside down into a closet so that the young thief and his accomplice, an undertaker’s assistant, can use the coffin as a hiding place for their stolen money. The wild adventures that occur among the thieves, a nurse who was with the dead woman at her death, the widowed husband, and a corrupt and brutal police inspector make for a vitriolic, deadly serious black comedy that makes most other drama in this genre seem genteel. ‘Seethes with black, baleful mirth. Cudgels traditional morality.’ - William Glover, Associated Press. JOE ORTON was born in Leicester in 1933. He left school at sixteen and two years later went to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He acted briefly in repertory and held a number of varied jobs. His first play to be staged was Entertaining Mr. Sloane, which won the London Critics’ ‘Variety’ Award as the best play of 1964. LOOT won the Evening Standard Drama Award for the best play of 1966. Mr. Orton was murdered in 1967. . Bookseller Inventory #
