An amazingly funny comedy
One Man, Two Guvnors is a new theatre production based on the play The Servant of Two Masters, written in 1746 by Carlo Goldini. This new version of a classic is set in Brighton, England in 1963 and centres around Frances, a poor man, who in desperation agrees to work for two bosses without letting the other know.



What follows is a hilarious comedy, in which Frances (Arran McKenna) attempts to please both Roscoe (Meaghan Stewart) and Stanley (Patrick Galen-Mules), while keeping them from knowing about the other. Little does he know that Roscoe (who is actually Rachel) and Stanley are actually a love-struck couple!

Although the plot itself isn't overly detailed and is actually rather basic, the comedy aspect of the play more than makes up for the lack of a sophisticated plot. The play writer (Richard Bean) has used every opportunity available to create jokes and punchlines. This makes for a very funny evening at the theatre, so funny that my cheeks hurt! So if you're in the mood for a good laugh, then I can't recommend One Man, Two Guvnors enough!
