Players tackle hit comedy

Award-winning West End and Broadway success One Man, Two Guvnors will hit the High Peak for the first time in an amateur production.

Sunday, 17th April 2016, 12:25 pm
One Man, Two Guvnors will be presented by Buxton Drama League at Buxton Opera House from May 19 to 21 at 7.30pm.

Buxton Drama League will present the work which is based on The Servant with Two Masters by Carlo Goldini. The creation is Richard Bean’s English adaptation of the 1743 classic commedia dell’arte play.

In the English version Venice is replaced by Brighton in the 1960s where an easily confused Francis Henshall ends up in the employ of sadistic gangster Roscoe Crabbe. Despondent, desperate and starving he is also hired by Stanley Stubbers, an upper class criminal on the run after murdering Roscoe… but if Roscoe is dead, who would pretend to be him and why? Francis struggles to keep his wits and keep his two Guvnors in the dark, as events take ever more hilarious turns.

The production runs at Buxton Opera House from May 19 to 21 at 7.30pm.
