A quest for fish, chips and mushy peas in the 1960s leads to a hilarious and politically incorrect caper at Melville Theatre this November and December.
Written by Richard Bean and directed by Vanessa Jensen, One Man, Two Guvnors is based on the most famous of Carlo Goldoni’s works, A Servant of Two Masters, originally written in the 1740s.
In this modern take on the tale, first staged in 2011, one man in the British seaside town of Brighton serves two criminal bosses and has to keep them apart – while desperate for food and trying to woo a woman at the same time.
One Man, Two Guvnors plays at 8pm November 25, 26, December 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10 with a 2pm matinee December 4. Tickets are $20, $15 concession – book on 9330 4565 or at www.meltheco.org.au.
Melville Theatre is on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Palmyra.
