One Man, Two Guvnors

One Man, Two Guvnors

McAninch Arts Center
425 Fawell Blvd Glen Ellyn

The ever-starving Francis Henshall finds himself working for both a gangster and a criminal in hiding, both of whom are linked in a web of schemes, shakedowns and seductions. To prevent the discovery that he is working for two bosses, Francis must do everything he can to keep his two guvnors apart, while still getting food and the girl. Playwright Bean transports the commedia dell'arte conventions of the 1746 "The Servant of Two Masters" to the seaside town of Briton in 1963. Daily Variety calls "One Man Two Guvnors" "...sheer comic delirium."

Presented by Buffalo Theatre Ensemble
