About this show

Dr. Prentice's stabs at extramarital seduction are interrupted by the unexpected arrival of his wife, who has just returned from a sexual misadventure of her own. Enter an overly enthusiastic hospital inspector and a dim-witted policeman, and thus begins a hilarious series of twists and turns as Dr. Prentice tries to hide his lusty behavior and his wife tries to protect her paramour from the police who seek him out. From the wicked wit of Joe Orton comes a dizzying tale of sexual impropriety and accusations of madness, complete with straight jackets, drugs, and lunatic logic. Darko Tresnjak directs What the Butler Saw.
