One Man Two Guvnors
Nelson Repertory Theatre has the feel-good hit of summer on its hands with Richard Bean’s inspired and deliriously funny One Man Two Guvnors. The side-splittingly funny West End and Broadway sensation is making its Nelson Debut in March 2017!
Receiving five star reviews from all over the world One Man Two Guvnors is set in the Swingin’ Sixties and the easily-confused Francis Henshall attempts to keep his two employers (local gangster Roscoe Crabbe and upper class criminal Stanley Stubbers) from meeting and learning of his dual-employment. All he needs to do is keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.
***** A triumph of visual and verbal comedy. One of the funniest productions in the National’s history. – The Guardian
***** 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. – The New Yorker
Audiences are encouraged to arrive early to see the band ‘The Craze’ perform in front of the curtain 15-20 minutes before the show begins and during the interval!
Special performance! For the Wednesday March 15 performance Nelson Repertory Theatre will donate $5 for every ticket purchased to the Food for Families Fund and the Nelson Lionesses.
