What the Butler Saw
    By Joe Orton

    19:00, Tue 28th January – Sat 1st February 2014 at Corpus Playroom
    Lent Week 2

    “My wife is a nymphomaniac… I married her for her money and, upon discovering her to be penniless, I attempted to throttle her. She escaped my murderous fury and I’ve had to live with her malice ever since.”

    Dr Prentice’s attempts to seduce his prospective secretary at his private psychiatric clinic are interrupted by the unexpected arrival of his wife. His subsequent endeavours to hide his transgression begin a string of deceptions and misunderstandings that drag everyone one into a day’s worth of farcical chaos. A government health inspector arrives, various characters are wrongly declared insane and are sedated, a rape is reported and cross dressing ensues. What the Butler Saw, is dark and relentlessly funny – Joe Orton’s finest farce.
