One Man Two Guvnors comes to Wisbech
Young actors are gearing up to bring the “funniest show on the planet” to Wisbech.
RATZ, the Angles Theatre’s award-winning inhouse company, are looking forward to performing One Man, Two Guvnors later this month.
The play, which celebrates the best of British comedy and was made famous by James Corden, has been seen by more than one million people.
After opening in the West End in 2011, the play went on a national tour before moving on to Broadway in 2012. It was then enjoyed by audiences in Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong.
There was a final UK tour in 2014, before the play was released for amateur companies to perform.
The comedy moves from slapstick to farce to satire and all the way through the audience is involved to ensure the correct ending to the story is achieved.
Set in the 1960s in Brighton, a young man is employed by two thugs.
One is a gangster and the other is a pretentious upper class criminal.
Neither thug know that they employ the same man and throughout the play neither thug must ever know.
However the two thugs’ lives are already intertwined!
The Richard Bean play is an adaptation of Carlo Goldoni’s classic comedy “Servant of Two Masters”, which was written in 1746.
Youngsters will be taking to the stage on Thursday, May 12, Friday, May 13, and Saturday, May 14.
Performances start at 7.30pm.
Tickets cost £11 with concessions of £9. To book you can contact the box office on 01945 474447.
