THE latest production from the Camberwell Grammarians’ Theatre Company is a British take on the classic play A Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni.
The theatre company, which has been running for two years, will be mining the laughs with One Man, Two Guvnors, the story of a man who becomes a minder to a small-time Brighton gangster but takes a job with a second “master” at the same time.
Producer Adam Porrett said the play, set in 1963, was about Francis (Sam Marzden) and his farcical attempts to keep his two “guvnors” apart.
“Anything and everything can go wrong,” Mr Porrett said.
He said the production company’s aim was to give audiences a good night out while putting on shows with high production values.
This particular production, Mr Porrett said, brought together former Camberwell Grammar School students, former students of girls’ schools who had performed in Camberwell Grammar plays and some dedicated theatre people from the wider community.
One Man, Two Guvnors is also directed by Stephen Bennie a parent at the school, and features a cameo by a current teacher.
The comedy runs from July 6-9 in the Middleton Theatre at Camberwell Grammar School, Canterbury.
