Sydney Theatre Company and UBS Australia present
A National Theatre of Great Britain production
By Richard Bean
Based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni
With songs by Grant Olding
It has played to packed houses on the West End and Broadway, scooped armfuls of five-star reviews and theatre awards and made thousands of theatre-goers roar with delight.
Now we’re bringing the National Theatre of Great Britain’s hit One Man, Two Guvnors to Sydney.
Inspired by Goldoni’s classic The Servant of Two Masters, this new production, written by Richard Bean and staged by the National Theatre’s Director, Nicholas Hytner, is a comic masterpiece for the 21st century.
Set in the seaside town of Brighton during the swinging ’60s, this is the tale of a simple, sandwich-loving man, Francis Henshall, who engineers himself into the employment of two bosses at the same time. Cue a parade of shady characters, mistaken identities, tortured love triangles and very, very old trainee waiters.
Featuring the British cast, One Man, Two Guvnors is one-part farce, one-part slapstick, plus a liberal splash of Carry On. Join the fun!
Warning! Mild saucy romping
