One Man, Two Guvnors

This uproarious fast-paced farce follows the mixed fortunes of failed musician Francis Henshall. The plot is simple. Down on his lunch and perpetually hungry, Francis suddenly finds himself employed by two bosses. One is disguised as her recently deceased infamous gangster brother while trying to extort money from her dead brother's fiancee's father. The other is her boyfriend, who killed her brother and is hiding from the police until they can be reunited. Simple, right? Richard Bean adapts Goldoni's 1753 Commedia "A Servant of Two Masters" and turns it into an uproarious British sex comedy set in the swinging sixties in Brighton, England.
