Djalili to star in Orton comedy

Date Posted: 19/03/2012

Comic Omid Djalili will return to London this summer to star in a new revival of Joe Orton’s farcical comedy What the Butler Saw.

The British-Iranian comedian, who played Fagin in the recent revival of Oliver!, will lead the cast of this new production, which runs at the Vaudeville Theatre from 4th May to 25th August.

Orton’s final play is a hilarious blend of twists, coincidences and one-liners sparked by psychoanalyst Dr Prentice instructing his new secretary to undress. When giving such a command, you don’t expect to be interrupted by your wife, her lover, an inquisitive policeman and a meddling government inspector.

Those organising group travel should contact their preferred ticketing agent for further details and group booking rates.
