About

Joe Orton's final and most ambitious play, What the Butler Saw, remains a manic farce and a masterclass in fearless comic writing.

No institution, political view or tradition is safe, as Orton 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.

Bringing together an array of distinctive characters and placing them in a series of improbable situations, Orton unflinchingly explores comic territory few playwrights before or since have dared to visit.
