Theatre Tulsa production “What the Butler Saw” by Joe Orton is a British farce that focuses on the antics of Dr. Prentice, a psychiatrist who believes that the best way to interview a girl for a job is to seduce her. The production is directed by Jim Queen and is recommended for mature audiences only.
Geraldine does her best to comply, but nothing is going to work smoothly in this nut house that includes Mrs. Prentice, a nymphomaniac who is seduced by a bellhop in a hotel (or is it the other way around?). What follows is a wild melee of disappearances, disguises and discoveries as husband and wife try to hide their prizes from one another and from the state inspector.
