This play is an irreverent involving a nurse, her now deceased patient, the wife of a clueless older man, whose son has dug through the wall of a mortuary to steal the money in a bank, with he s friend, who, it turns out, being in love with ALL women by fathering children on 5 of them is in love with that very same nurse All is found out by a police detective, masterfully disguised as a Water Board Inspector The ending is NOT predictable but is IS very funny It s
Loot certainly made me smirk in places but I think I read plays too fast and therefore miss some of the impact, perhaps I should read aloud the next play I read Am I correct in thinking that the copper walks off with all the cash in the end Nothing Vic Mackie about that at all same stories repeated through time Written in the 60s but ageless really, highly relevant still although the use of the word baby between friends was odd There s a great dealto this play writing lark than I fir Loot certainly made me smirk in places but I think I read plays too fast and therefore miss some of the impact, perhaps I should read aloud the next play I read Am I correct in thinking that the copper walks off with all the cash in the end Nothing Vic Mackie about that at all same stories repeated throug
