Audition, Industry Listing.

Bygone Theatre is holding auditions for Joe Orton's LOOT, which runs from March 8-17, 2017 (11 performances) at the Alumnae Theatre.

The show is non-union, with a $50 honorarium + profit share; it is Dora eligible. Directed by Emily Dix.

SYNOPSIS: Only hours before her intended burial, the late Mrs.McLeavy is removed from her coffin by her son, Hal, and his best pal, Dennis, who have together just robbed a bank and need the coffin to stash the loot. Absurdity abounds in the dark, 1965 farce that examines attitudes surrounding death, police integrity, and the Catholic church.

CHARACTERS:
All characters require the use of a British accent and excellent comedic timing.

HAL - early 20s, British, gay, the son of the recently deceased, full of Catholic guilt

DENNIS - early 20s, British, a sexual deviant & an undertaker

FAY - mid to late 20s, British, a nurse, says she's a devout Catholic, uses her sexuality to manipulate men

MR. MCLEAVY - middle aged, British, a recent widower, old-fashioned, a devout Catholic, concerned about his son

INSPECTOR TRUSCOTT - middle aged, British, the bumbling police detective, not above bribery and violence, embodies every negative stereotype of the police force

MEADOWS - 20s-30s, a police officer (minor role)
