Adapted from Carlo Goldoni's The Servant of Two Masters, the play centers on Francis Henshall, who agrees to work for a local gangster as well as a criminal in hiding, both of whom are linked in a tangled web of schemes and romantic associations, which Francis cannot keep straight.
Stand-up comedian and presenter Rufus Hound will play Francis for the majority of the UK tour, including engagements at Leicester Curve (October 25-November 3), Newcastle Theatre Royal (November 6-10), Glasgow Theatre Royal (November 13-17), Belfast Grand Opera (November 20-24), Blackpool Grand (November 27-December 1), Norwich Theatre Royal (December 4- 8), Leeds Grand (December 11-15), The Lowry, Salford (January 8-19) and Nottingham Theatre Royal (January 29-February 2).
Owain Arthur, currently playing Francis in the West End, will perform the role for the shows at Venue Cymru, Llandudno (January 2-5) and Wales Millennium, Cardiff (January 22- 26).
Arthur will then headline the international leg of the tour, with performances scheduled at the Hong Kong Festival (February 15- 23), the Adelaide Festival (February 28-March 9), the Auckland Festival (March 14- 23), Sydney Theatre (March 30-May 11), and Melbourne Arts Centre (May 17-June 29).
