★ ★ ★ ★ ★
a first-rate production by Michael Fentiman that reminds us of the serious intent behind Orton’s drollery
The Guardian on Loot (Park Theatre)

★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Fentiman directs like a man possessed.  This production contains more speed and energy in five minutes than most current comedies in their entirety. And the cast is superb.
The Express on Loot

It’s gag after aphoristic, satirical gag … Michael Fentiman has achieved a literary coup
The Telegraph on Loot

a director with real flair
