Joe Orton’s What The Butler Saw – Tuesday 14 to Saturday 18 May at 7.30pm

Thursday & Saturday matinee at 2.30pm

Joe Orton’s final, most ambitious play is a masterclass in fearless comic writing and biting social commentary and is NOT to be missed. No institution, political view or tradition is safe as the celebrated playwright focuses his wicked sense of humour on a range of targets, including the establishment, an ex-Prime Minister, cross-dressing, misogyny and the medical profession. Within the pristine walls of his private psychiatric clinic, Doctor Prentice is interviewing a new secretary.  Geraldine wants the position but seems underqualified and uncertain about her parentage.  Mrs Prentice appears, flushed and in urgent need of a drink, following an illicit encounter... Tickets from £16.50 with concessions available. Contains strong language and subject matter which the playwright very much hoped audiences would find offensive. Age Guidance 14+
