What The Butler Saw

THURSDAY 2 JULY, 2.30pm Arts [email protected] A curated bi – monthly series of performance work to enjoy at home, but experience collectively with others, joining together for a shared post show chat or response. An archive recording of the 2017 Made at Curve and Theatre Royal Bath co-production of Joe Orton’s contemporary classic. Dr Prentice, a psychiatric doctor in a private clinic, is attempting to interview – and seduce – would-be secretary Geraldine. Unwittingly surprised by his wife, he hides the girl. The affairs multiply as Mrs Prentice is seduced and blackmailed by young bellhop Nicholas Beckett, and promises him the secretarial post. When a government inspector arrives, closely followed by Sergeant Match, who is in search of missing parts of Winston Churchill, chaos, cross-dressing and mistaken identity lead the charge. Suitable for 18+. Please note: this play contains explicit content and language some people may find offensive. The captioned archive recording will be live on this page from 7pm Sun 19 Apr. Post a feedback comment on the Arts Alive website. And tweet at #CurveButler
