LOOT (article first published : 2001-09-8)

Albeit an amateur society in the sense that they receive no remuneration for performances, the Kloof Amateur Dramatic Society (KADS) have a reputation of producing high quality entertainment in a supper theatre format.

Their latest offering is the hilariously off-beat dark comedy Loot, penned by award-winning British playwright Joe Orton which takes crime, violence, promiscuity and injustice and gives these themes a wry twist, with satirical dialogue worthy of Oscar Wilde.

Partly banned by the Lord Chamberlain in Britain when it was first performed in the 6Os, the set of Loot features a coffin complete with its anything but peacefully resting occupant.

Mike Dunleavy directs a cast which includes himself as a gullible widower, actress-singer Judith Hathorn as a naughty nurse, Michael Bradley as an underhand undertaker and David Campbell-Hall.

Loot runs in the Kloof Town Hall until September 15. Tickets R55 include supper available from Incredible Books at the Field Centre in Kloof or phone (031) 764-6275.
