Wild, bawdy and ferociously playful, Joe Orton's outrageous farce What the Butler Saw is one of the seminal works of modern comedy. When a psychiatrist tries to seduce an aspiring secretary, his botched efforts lead to comic bedlam involving his insatiable wife, a randy bellhop, a befuddled police officer and Sir Winston Churchill. Psychiatry, religion, marriage, government, definitions of gender and even language are all targets of British playwright Orton's poison pen. His sly jokes and hilarious shenanigans will have you shaking with laughter from start to finish. Learn More

The actress who played Sister Mary Ignatius did a superb job. Play dragged towards the end. Should have left at intermission. The Actor's Nightmare was an audience's nightmare.

This production of Sister Mary Ignatius was way off track. I feel the director wasnt familair with the playwright Christopher Durang. My guest said "it seemed like a highschool production". We left at intermission. Sad.

The first few minutes of the show were moderately funny, poking fun at the canons of the Church, Pope, etc. but it quickly degenerated into painfully unfunny references including mocking the crucifixion, which is no way funny in my view & a ridiculous parody of the birth of Jesus. I would've walked out early but was seated in front row & didn't want to cause a scene. I would've requested my money back but there was no one present in the ticket booth. I left w/o staying for The Actor's Nightmare, having had one already.

These one-act plays were both hilarious and thought-provoking. Everyone in the cast has amazing talent! As a lifelong Catholic, I thoroughly enjoyed "Sister Mary's" satire (not offensive to anyone's faith). As a theatre fan, I marveled at "Nightmare's" portrayal of "stage jitters" meant to look like improvisation!
