Riotous new comedy
Riotous new comedy

The London Street Theatre Group head back to the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre from August 2 to present the modern comedy classic, Joe Orton’s What the Butler Saw.

What the Butler Saw is the last work of one of Britain’s most celebrated playwrights and is directed by Brad Tudor.

It brings the one-liners, outrageous twists and riotous comedy of the 1967 classic to the stage.

When psychoanalyst Dr Prentice instructs his new secretary to undress, he doesn’t expect to be interrupted by his wife, her blackmailing lover, a government inspector and an inquisitive policeman.

But hiding a naked woman is the least of his worries, as libidos run riot, identities are swapped, social decorum is buried, madness mocks morality and laughter reigns.

What the Butler Saw shows at The Fishtrap Theatre at 8pm on August 2, 3, 4, 9 and 11, and 2pm on August 4 and 11.

Tickets are $25 for all Thursday shows, $35 for all other performances and $20 for FOMPAC members.
