Satire and slapstick abound in a glorious celebration of British comedy.
Following runs starring James Corden on Broadway, the West End and sell-out national tours, the regional amateur premiere of One Man, Two Guvnors will be staged by Midland Players at University Drama Studio, Sheffield, from March 23 to 26.
The play is Richard Bean’s English adaptation of the 1743 classic, Servant of Two Masters by Venetian playwright Carlo Goldoni.
In the updated version Venice is replaced by Brighton in the 1960s where Francis Henshall ends up in the employ of gangster Roscoe Crabbe. Despondent and desperate, he is also hired by Stanley Stubbers, an upper class criminal on the run after murdering Roscoe… but if Roscoe is dead, who would pretend to be him and why? Francis struggles to keep his Guvnors in the dark, as events take hilarious turns.
