Everything is going wrong in Butley's life, and all he can do is sling barbs at the people around him. The cranky literary
professor is suicidal, drinking too much, and has neither his wife or male lover to run to. Does he have any hope for making
it through the week—or even the day? Butley is a dark play, to be sure, but watching this unique character use his
humor to deflect pain is great fun.
Butley originally premiered in 1971, and immediately drew rave reviews for its portrayal of an erudite academic shambling
through life in a drunk, depressed stupor. The story is buoyed up by Butley's incredible wit. At every turn, he's insulting
or poking fun at his students, his colleagues or his romantic partners. Don't miss this dark comedy!
