WHAT THE BUTLER SAW to Open 8/1 at Theater at MonmouthWHAT THE BUTLER SAW to Open 8/1 at Theater at Monmouth
by BWW News Desk (Maine)

(7/25/2014) - Joe Orton's frenetic farce, What the Butler Saw, opens at Theater at Monmouth on Friday, August 1 at 7:30 p.m. The perfect blend of Oscar Wilde's wit, Monty Python's physical comedy, and Benny Hill's lewdness, What the Butler Saw bursts with mistaken identities, catastrophic complications, and rapid-fire dialogue. Orton's ribald examination of societal attitudes toward sexuality is a rampaging celebration of licentiousness and free-will.
