by Richard Bean
Based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldini
& songs by Grant Olding
Directed by Connie Canaday Howard

The ever-starving Francis Henshall finds himself working for both a gangster and a criminal in hiding, both of whom are linked in a series of schemes, shakedowns, and seductions. To prevent the discovery that he is working for two bosses, Francis must do everything he can to keep his two guvnors apart, while still getting food and the girl. Playwright Bean transports the com media dell’arte conventions of the 1746 “The Servant of Two Masters” to the seaside town of Brighton in 1963. Play contains adult themes and language.
