No Strapline

One Man, Two Guvnors

Friday 12 April–Saturday 11 May 2024

New Vic Theatre

By Richard Bean
Based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni with songs by Grant Olding
Directed by Conrad Nelson

It’s 1963, Brighton. Sacked from his band, Francis Henshall finds himself out of work. A man who can’t be kept down for too long, he’s soon got not one but TWO dubious new employers.

There’s just one problem… they can’t know about each other!

With money to be made and a love interest to woo, Francis has got his hands full. Juggling the work of a small-town gangster and a man on the run from the police, can he keep himself and his bosses out of trouble long enough to bank some cash and win the hand of the love of his life?

A cocktail of mistaken identity, mayhem, music, fast-paced physical comedy and silliness make One Man, Two Guvnors one of the great British comedies of the 21st century! Directed by Conrad Nelson (The Card, Brassed Off) this new production will have you grinning from ear to ear as we bring it to vivid life on our in-the-round stage!
