ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS to Bring Laughs to Contemporary Theater Company This Summer
This farce originally opened in London in 2011 and The Daily Telegraph called it "the feelgood hit of the summer!"
In One Man, Two Guvnors, Francis, played by CTC ensemble member Rico Lanni, finds himself at the beck and call of two employers, rivals in the local mob scene. Things spin out of control as he tries to keep it all straight without revealing everyone's secrets.
"There's comedy, audience participation, confusion, comedy, fancy food, and comedy," says the show's director Sami Avigdor.
The main character, Francis, breaks the fourth wall throughout the show, speaking to the audience directly, adding extra fun to the proceedings. Physical comedy fills the show with laughs as Francis unravels trying to keep up with the demands of his bosses.
"There are twists and turns, secrets and reveals," says Communications Director Maggie Cady, "but above all, there's just a lot of silly fun!"
