Orton's classic comedy is revived with David Grindley at the directorial helm. Read More >

The production team behind the 2002 revival of Abigail’s Party work their magic on Orton’s classic comedy.

Set in the world of a fashionable London psychiatrist’s clinic, the normally sterile surroundings become a bedlam of gender confusion, mistaken identities, clothes strewn asunder and sexual intrigue. When the less than reputable Dr. Prentice takes a very medical approach to interviewing an aspiring secretary he sets in motion a series of events that make it harder and harder to hide his true intentions.
