About this show

The uproarious, fast-paced farce One Man, Two Guvnors follows the mixed fortunes of failed musician Francis Henshall. The plot is simple. Down on his luck 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 fiancée's dad. 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 a hysterical British sex comedy set in the swinging sixties in Brighton, England. The Philadelphia premiere of this award-wining adaptation will star Quintessence Theatre and 1812 favorite Sean Close.
