One Man Two Guv'nors at the Upstairs at the Gatehouse
The Tower Theatre Company will present an amateur production of the hit comedy One Man, Two Guv'nors by Richard Bean at the Upstairs at the Gatehouse Theatre in Highgate, north London from 6 to 10 October 2015.
"Brighton, 1963. Change is in the air. Down on his luck, Francis Henshall finds himself employed by small-time crook Roscoe Crabbe, in town to collect a debt from his fiancée's gangster father. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother, herself in love with Stanley Stubbers (her brother's killer and Francis's other gaffer). With the distractions of a pneumatic bookkeeper, a self-important actor and the criminal fraternity, not to mention his own mammoth appetite to contend with, how long can Francis keep his guvnors apart?."
The international hit comedy originally opened at the National Theatre in 2011, before transferring to the West End, Broadway and numerous UK tours. It is based on the 1743 play 'Servant of Two Masters' by the Venetian playwright Carlo Goldoni.
This amateur production is directed by Dan Usztan with set design by Jude Chalk, costume design by Jessica Hammett, lighting design by Robin Snowdon and sound design by Ruth Sullivan.
The Tower Theatre Company was founded in 1932 and aims to provide high quality, broadly based, affordable drama to people of all ages and backgrounds and features amateur actors and production teams.
