What the Butler Saw

“The sane appear as strange to the mad as the mad to the sane”

When Joe Orton’s final play was performed posthumously in 1969 its disregard for the conventional morals of the time outraged and enthralled audiences. Now, some 40 years later the play has lost none of its impact and sparkles with acerbic wit and slapstick hilarity.

‘What the Butler Saw’ is the premiere production to be held at Birmingham’s brand new Blue Orange Theatre.
