Another rip-roaring night of comedy entertainment is on the cards with College Players Theatre Company’s forthcoming production, One Man Two Guvnors by Richard Bean, the smash hit comedy that wowed audiences in London’s West End and on Broadway, winning Olivier and Tony awards – including Best Actor Tony for James Corden! The play runs November 8 to 12 at the Lime Tree Theatre, nightly @ 8pm.
Following last year’s smash hit ‘Noises Off’, and other comedy hits in recent years such as ‘The Rise and Fall of Little Voice’ and ‘Lend Me A Tenor’, Limerick audiences are in for another wonderful night of hilarity, the first time local patrons will have a chance to see this sensational show.

About One Man Two Guvnors: Fast-talking Francis Henshall finds himself in a sticky predicament when, in his constant quest for a quick buck and a bite to eat, he ends up simultaneously working for two rival masters. Can he prevent his bosses from meeting face-to-face, or has Francis bitten off more than he can chew? This raucous new adaptation by Richard Bean of Goldoni’s classic Eighteenth Century Italian comedy, ‘The Servant of Two Masters’ reset to 1963 Brighton, is filled with improvisation, audience interaction, and plenty of surprises to boot! Lauded as “comic perfection” and “the funniest show in the western world”, One Man Two Guvnors promises to be a side-splitting evening of theatre unlike any you’ve ever seen.
This exciting production of One Man Two Guvnors is once again under the direction of Dave Griffin, who directed the successful ‘Noises Off’ in 2015. Another multi-talented and high-quality cast has been assembled, featuring for the first time with College, the multi-award winning Aódan Fox in the lead role of Francis Henshall. The cast also includes College stalwarts Brian McNamara, Jean McGlynn, Padhraic Hastings and Chris Rowley, in addition to welcome returns for Liam O’Brien, Miriam Ball, Rachel Griffin, and Dan Mooney. College are delighted to welcome for the first time, Lee Dillon, Paddy Kelly and Eoghan Ahern.
You can see this production from November 8 – 12 at Lime Tree Theatre at 8pm. Tuesday night November 8 will support various local charities and all tickets on Wednesday night November 9 are only €10 for groups of 10 or more.
