Well done by Morgan-Wixson, as usual. Joe Orton wrote this comedy in 1966 yet the satire rings true today, especially his take on the medical establishment, the government, religion and, of course, sex.

More Information



Dr. Prentice, a psychiatric doctor in an exclusive, private clinic, is attempting to interview (and seduce) an attractive would-be secretary, Geraldine. Unwittingly surprised by his wife, he hides the girl. The affairs multiply as Mrs. Prentice, being seduced and blackmailed by young bellhop Nicholas Beckett, has promised him the secretarial post. When a government inspector arrives, chaos, underpants and cross-dressing lead the charge. This classic British farce will be sure to have you rolling in the aisles.
