Joe Orton's What The Butler Saw at The Dolman Theatre, Newport reviewed

Joe Orton's final full length play What The Butler Saw is featured at The Dolman Theatre, Newport until February 22.

I went along to review the production on Wednesday evening...
The society’s latest presentation Joe Orton’s 1967 play What the Butler Saw takes them into new territory mixing a politically incorrect comic scenario with surrealism and dark humour...
...Much of What the Butler Saw’s deep rooted dark humour allows the audience to re-evaluate the concept of farce, and as illustrated in Wednesday night’s opening performance, that doesn’t always mean the jokes have to be laugh out loud.
