About this show

2007 IRNE Award Winner David Wheeler directs Joe Orton's hilarious take on psychology and the therapy biz. Originally produced in 1969, this "classic" farce is as outrageously funny today as it was then. A lecherous psychiatrist, his naïve secretary, his nymphomaniac wife, her reluctant bellhop, and a clueless inspector lead each other on a merry chase of mistaken identities, disguises, mayhem and madness. 1970 Obie Award Winner"A study of the libido and lunacy that was Orton's last play and arguably his funniest... Sexual identity, like sanity, is tenuous at best, and the amount of sexual confusion in What the Butler Saw would send Freud back to the couch." - New York Times
