One Man, Two Guvnors

Jul 22-Aug 13, 2023

One Man, Two Guvnors

Brighton, England. The swinging 60s. Hilarity and hijinks ensue when Francis Henshall, fired from a skiffle band and in search of new work, finds himself employed by a woman (posing as her mobster brother) and by her boyfriend (who is hiding from that brother). How long can Francis keep them apart? Featuring live music and uproarious fun, Richard Bean’s adaptation of “The Servant of Two Masters” delivers a fresh spin on a farcical commedia classic.

What is the right thing to do? And must the show go on?

One Man, Two Guvnors

Jul 22-Aug 13, 2023

One Man, Two Guvnors

Brighton, England. The swinging 60s. Hilarity and hijinks ensue when Francis Henshall, fired from a skiffle band and in search of new work, finds himself employed by a woman (posing as her mobster brother) and by her boyfriend (who is hiding from that brother). How long can Francis keep them apart? Featuring live music and uproarious fun, Richard Bean’s adaptation of “The Servant of Two Masters” delivers a fresh spin on a farcical commedia classic.

Since 1958, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival has delighted audiences with professional theatre on the CU Boulder campus. Complete your Colorado summer with Shakespeare in the elegant indoor Roe Green Theatre.
