Richard Bean, based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

One Man… Two Guvnors… and an evening full of joy and laughter!

Based on Carlo Goldoni’s 'The Servant of Two Masters', 'One Man, Two Guvnors' still remains one of the nation’s most loved comedies of this century. When Francis Henshall finds himself employed by two guvnors, one a gangster in disguise, the other an upper-class lover, we experience comedy chaos like no other.

This production is recommended for ages 12 and over.

This amateur production of “One Man Two Guvnors” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. Including the song from the original National Theatre production Tomorrow Looks Good From Here by Grant Olding and Richard Bean.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
