A summer season of 
contemporary works in the Cook Theatre!

Welcome back to Dog Days Theatre, the perfect way to spend a cool summer evening or a hot summer afternoon — with wonderful plays in terrific productions performed by professional actors from around the country as well as FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training students and alumni. Our inaugural season was a wonderful success, and we look forward to having you back for many summers to come. This year, we present a wildly chaotic farce and one of the most complex of ghost stories. Smart, sophisticated theatre — just right for the dog days of summer.

What the Butler Saw
By JOE ORTON
Directed by GREG LEAMING


Wild, risqué, and ferociously funny, Joe Orton’s classic farce takes aim at everything from sex to psychiatry. In an exclusive, private mental health clinic, Dr. Prentice is attempting to seduce his prospective secretary when his wife walks in, interrupting his sordid intentions and kicking off a maniacal tour de force involving a state inspector, bellboys, slamming doors, and, above all, Orton’s wicked wit and breakneck dialogue.

 

August 7–August 26
The Turn of the Screw

Adapted by JEFFREY HATCHER
From the story by HENRY JAMES
Directed by CHRIS CLAVELLI


1840. An era charmed by superstition, madness, and the writings of Sigmund Freud led Henry James to write one of the most chilling ghost stories of all time. A young governess arrives at a seemingly idyllic country house to look after two orphaned children. But shortly after her arrival, she realizes they’re not alone. She risks everything to keep the children safe, until she begins to question her sanity, and the children’s innocence.
