See the Risqué British Comedy: WHAT THE BUTLER SAW & have Dinner at Hide Sushi


Come and see the Risqué British Comedy

What the Butler Saw


Wild, bawdy and ferociously playful, Joe Orton's outrageous farce What the Butler Saw is one of the best plays in modern comedy. When a psychiatrist tries to seduce an aspiring secretary, his botched efforts lead to comic bedlam involving his insatiable wife, a randy bellhop, a befuddled police officer and Sir Winston Churchill. Psychiatry, religion, marriage, government, definitions of gender and even language are all targets of British playwright Orton's poison pen. His sly jokes and hilarious shenanigans will have you shaking with laughter from start to finish.

You have to see this play to believe it!

Dr. Prentice, a psychiatric doctor in an exclusive, private clinic, is attempting to interview (and seduce) an attractive would-be secretary, Geraldine. Unwittingly surprised by his wife, he hides the girl. The affairs multiply as Mrs. Prentice, being seduced and blackmailed by young bellhop Nicholas Beckett, has promised him the secretarial post. When a government inspector arrives, chaos, underpants and cross-dressing lead the charge. This classic British farce will be sure to have you rolling in the aisles.
