Welcome to the madhouse, as Joe Orton's legendary 1967 comedy performs at the Vaudeville Theatre. Starring Omid Djalili, What the Butler Saw is an insanely funny, full-throttle tour de farce. Hysterical one liners and outrageous twists collide, as the characters loose the plot, their wits, and their clothes.
When psychoanalyst Dr Prentice, played by Tim McInnerny, instructs his new secretary (Georgia Moffett) to undress, little does he expect to be interrupted by his wife (Samantha Bond), her blackmailing lover (Nick Hendrix), a meddling government inspector (Omid Djalili) and an inquisitive policeman (Jason Thorpe). But hiding a naked woman is the least of his worries, as libidos run riot, identities are swapped and social decorum is buried. Madness and mayhem mock morality, and laughter reigns supreme. What the Butler Saw is the last and arguably the finest work of one of this nation's most celebrated playwrights. A gloriously witty and shockingly hilarious comedy, you'd be mad to miss it!
Please note: There will be some semi-nudity and there is a recommended age guidance of 12+
