50th Anniversary of Joe Orton's 'What the Butler Saw'

University of Leicester's Dr Emma Parker with actors Timothy West and Hayward Morse.

To mark the 50th anniversary of Joe Orton's play What the Butler Saw, Dr Emma Parker hosted an event at The British Library featuring actor Timothy West (Rance in the 1987 BBC version of the play) and Hayward Morse (who played Nick in the original 1969 production) plus Tony Award-winning director John Tillinger and Nikolai Foster, Artistic Director at Curve, Leicester.

The evening produced startling revelations and some rude stories about the original production of the play, in a typically Ortonesque manner.
