What the Butler Saw follows
Dr. Prentice, the head physician at a private and very exclusive psychiatric clinic. He is interviewing Geraldine for a secretarial position while making an inept attempt to seduce her, but being a doctor, he takes advantage of his position to encourage her out of her clothes so he can examine her.
At the same time, Mrs. Prentice arrives with a young man in tow, Nicholas, to whom she has promised the secretarial position, as he is blackmailing her. Geraldine is forced to go into hiding wearing only her underwear or even less. Further complicating matters are the arrival of a government inspector, Dr. Rance, checking out the clinic and, subsequently, a police sergeant.
The cast includes Phil Apoian, Harold Dershimer, Drew Fitzsimmons, Emily McLeod, Maria Pavone and Frank Weidner.
The play is directed by Ben Lupejkis, with Tom Laskey and Brian Raine as producers.
Tickets are $20 for general admission and $18 for students and seniors.
