Joe Orton’s family and friends discuss What the Butler Saw

The family and biographer of playwright Joe Orton discuss the TV adaptation of Orton’s play - What the Butler Saw (1987) - directed by Barry Davis. Orton, who was murdered 50 years ago, wrote nine plays in his short career. What the Butler Saw, a tragi-comic farce in which a married psychiatrist tries to seduce his prospective secretary, was his final full-length play. This event, which took place on 27th August 2017 at London’s BFI Southbank venue, was chaired by the Guardian’s chief theatre critic, Michael Billington.
