SCATHING FARCE OPENS @ STNJ ON SEPTEMBER 6: BUY TICKETS NOW



"Doctor – I'm naked! You do realize that, don't you?"


WHAT THE BUTLER SAW

By Joe Orton
Directed by Paul Mullins

WHEN: Performances begin September 6
WHERE:
F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre, 36 Madison Ave., Madison

First performed in 1969, two years after Orton's murder at the age of 34, this scathing farce shocked audiences when it was first produced. Now, almost 50 years later, what were racy subjects are far less so, and we are able to both laugh more and see better the acid bullets that Orton fires in a startling pace from beginning to end. This hilarious comedy unveils the fragile state of truth in the hands of those in power, and the power of truth despite our easy ability to twist it.
