***** "Officially the funniest play on the planet" - Daily Mail
The side-splittingly funny West End and Broadway sensation, One Man, Two Guvnors, is making its New Zealand debut as part of the Auckland Arts Festival 2013. Receiving five star reviews from all over the world, this will be the only New Zealand seaon.
One Man, Two Guvnors happily hijacks the plot of an 18th century comedy The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni. Written by Richard Bean with songs by Grant Olding, it’s an outrageously funny mix of farce, sing-alongs, Python-esque absurdity and slapstick that has audiences from New York to London in blissful fits of laughter.
***** A triumph of visual and verbal comedy. One of the funniest productions in the National's history. - The Guardian
Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe… but Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother… who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a job with Stanley Stubbers. To prevent discovery Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.
Tag along with Francis to 1960s Brighton, England - lovingly recreated in all its groovy glory by the remarkable direction of Nicholas Hytner and the punchy, rockabilly sounds of live skiffle band The Craze.
Get in fast, get in early and get ready to laugh till it hurts!
***** An evening of riotous delight... I found myself physically incapable with laughter. - Daily Telegraph UK
***** The longest sustained laugh I’ve heard in years of theatre-going
