One Man, Two Guvnors logoOne Man, Two Guvnors

by Richard Bean, based on "The Servant of Two Masters" by Carlo Goldoni, with songs by Grant Olding

February 22 - March 3, 2019, Crafton-Preyer Theatre

In 1963 England, a skiffle player named Francis is kicked out of his band and becomes separately employed by two men: a small-time gangster and an upper-class twit. In action-packed, hilarious and downright ridiculous scenes, Francis goes out of his way to serve two “guvnors” and keep his dual employment a secret. And, he’s not the only one hiding something in this 2012 Tony Award-winning farce, which is an adaptation of The Servant of Two Masters, a 1743 Commedia dell'arte play by Carlo Goldoni.

Our 2018-19 season is sponsored by Truity Credit Union. The University Theatre is partially funded by the KU Student Senate Activity Fee.
