Refreshing Summer Theatre

Loot

“A great night out!” – CBC

“four stars out of five!”

“Angry comedy of the ’60s still a tour-de-force”

“If there were any doubts as to whether Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre could sustain the high-calibre of its inaugural season, they were extinguished during its entertaining encore season-opening production of Joe Orton’s black comedy Loot.”

“The cast is top-drawer, highlighted by scene-stealer Mackie’s hilarious turn as Truscott, the ridiculously judgemental investigator who fancies himself a Sherlock Holmes-ian sleuth but whose outrageous deductions confirm he’s as clueless as Clouseau.”

“Special mention must also be made of Rod Peter Jr., drop-dead hilarious and remarkably pliable as the concealed, rudely-mishandled corpse of Mrs. McLeavy. It’s as much of a comic device as her dentures and a glass-eye that had the audience in stitches.”

-Michael D. Reid, The Times Colonist
