One of the best known and most outrageous comedies of the 1960s, this is classic Orton, full of wickedly sharp one-liners and caustic put-downs. Irreligioius, anti-establishment and still shockingly laugh-out-loud funny. Much of its savage wit turns out to have a ring of truth. After opening in the West End in 1966, it was a massive hit, winning numerous awards for best new play of the year. There's a body in a cupboard, a vicious policeman thinly disguised as a man from the Water Board, a nurse on the make and no moral compass whatsoever! Unmissable and gloriously funny.
