What the Butler Saw

By Joe Orton

Directed by Scott Fritsche

Dr. Prentice, a psychiatrist attempting to seduce his attractive, prospective secretary - Geraldine Barclay - convinces her to undress as part of the interview process. The situation becomes intense as Mrs. Prentice enters unannounced. Dr. Prentice attempts to cover up his activity by hiding the girl behind a curtain. His wife, however, is also being seduced and blackmailed by a Nicholas Beckett. She therefore promises Nicholas the post of secretary, which adds further confusion, including Nicholas and Geraldine dressing as the opposite sex. Dr. Prentice's clinic is then faced with a government inspection as chaos continues throughout this farcical comedy.
