In this modern comic classic, Dr. Prentice's stabs at extramarital seduction are interrupted by the unexpected arrival of his wife, who has just returned from a sexual misadventure of her own. Enter an overly enthusiastic hospital inspector and a dim-witted policeman, and thus begins a hilarious series of twists and turns, as Dr. Prentice tries to hide his lusty behavior and his wife tries to protect her paramour from the police who seek him out. From the wicked wit of Joe Orton comes a dizzying tale of sexual impropriety and accusations of madness, complete with straight jackets, drugs, and lunatic logic.

"To me, the beauty of theatre is that there are no 'takes.' There is only the insane, glorious pressure of trying to achieve excellence in the present moment."- Darko Tresnak
