Playhouse on the Square to Present ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS, 9/26-10/12
In this fresh, English version of the classic farce, Servant of Two Masters, Francis Hernshall has just been fired from his folk jazz skiffle band. Desperate for work, he becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother -- who's been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Francis spots the chance for an extra meal ticket and takes a job with Stubbers -- but to prevent discovery he must keep his two "guvnors" apart. Simple. This unique laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, and slapstick is an award-winning celebration of British Comedy.
