BEST NEW PLAY — 2011 Critics’ Circle Award

A glorious celebration of the power of live theatre to make you laugh out loud. Adapted from The Servant of Two Masters, this multi-award-winning new comedy follows the increasingly perilous attempts of Francis Henschall to keep his two “guvnors” straight. The play’s unique blend of satire, live music, commedia and wit have made it an international sensation. Recommended for ages 13+. With Chris Crawford as Francis Henschall. Directed by Amy Herzberg.

“A triumph of visual and verbal comedy.” – The Guardian
