What the Butler Saw
    By Joe Orton

    19:30, Tue 22nd – Sat 26th November 2005 at Fitzpatrick Hall
    Michaelmas Week 7

    -"I am a heterosexual"
    -"I wish you wouldn't use these Chaucerian words."

    A London psychiatric clinic becomes a world of carnivalesque chaos when rampant libidos, mistaken identities, undressing and cross-dressing create layer upon layer of mischievous confusion in Orton's farcical masterpiece. The less than reputable Dr. Prentice makes his advances on a would-be secretary and sets in motion events that blur boundaries of gender, decency, and sanity.

    'an icon of modern drama' - The Guardian

    'A truly classic sex farce that keeps up an almost relentless stream of great gags.' -Sunday Express

    'A breakneck comedy of near operatic complexity' - Metro
