One Man, Two Guvnors
by Richard Bean
Based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni
With songs by Grant Olding
Directed by Edward Stern
September 10 - October 5
Francis Henshall needs a job. Recently sacked from his skiffle band, he’s hungry and has a bad case of fish and chips on the brain. To make ends meet, he becomes a servant to two different masters. Frazzled Francis tries his best to balance duties and keep his bosses from meeting, but what he doesn’t know about them, and what they don’t know about each other, quickly become uproarious and riotous cases of mistaken identities and slapstick antics in this laugh-out-loud award-winning comedy.
The comic hit of two continents, this inventive and outrageously funny play is a laugh riot.
“Absolutely silly and utterly entertaining!” — Judith Newmark, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“An enormous hit that will have you literally rolling in the aisles convulsing with laughter!” — Chris Gibson, Broadwayworld.com
“Plenty of laughs to enjoy.” — Harry Hamm, KMOX-AM
