“What the Butler Saw” at the Mark Taper Forum Nov. and Dec. 2014
November – December 2014
“What the Butler Saw” by Joe Orton
Directed by John Tillinger
With Paxton Whitehead
Set in the consulting room of a private psychiatric clinic, the action begins when the very proper Dr. Prentice is interrupted by his wife just as he is about to seduce a beautiful, young woman who is applying for a job as a secretary. As his botched efforts to conceal his actions spiral outrageously out of control, Orton ferociously skewers psychiatry, religion, marriage, morality, government and definitions of gender.
