What the Butler Saw

By Joe Orton

Directed by Brendon Fox

This event has passed

This hilarious farce, which pokes fun at sex, authority, family relationships and the world of psychoanalysis, remains as audacious today as ever. While attempting to seduce a prospective secretary, a sex-obsessed psychiatrist is confounded by the arrival of his nymphomaniac wife, a lunatic supervisor, a handsome bellhop, and a clueless policeman.

Orton’s classic comedy shows us a view of society with its pants down.
