WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Hartford Stage presents What the Butler Saw written by Joe Orton. Dr. Prentice, a sex-obsessed psychiatrist, is attempting to seduce a prospective secretary. His amorous efforts are thwarted by the arrival of his nymphomaniac wife, an over-enthusiastic hospital inspector and a dim-witted policeman. The clinic becomes a bedlam of mistaken identity, undressing and cross-dressing as the true traditions of classic farce are spiked with Orton's unmistakable naughty glee. Libidos run rampant in this comic drama about licensed insanity. Directed by Michael Wilson.
