A flat-out, full-tilt British farce.


June 6 - October 13

What do you do when you’re employed by a murderous gangster and a wealthy snob? You do everything in your power to make sure they never meet! This modern take on Carlo Goldoni’s Commedia dell’arte classic, The Servant of Two Masters, has it all: romantic romps, criminal capers and some of the funniest dialogue this side of Brighton. It’s a sure-fire crowd-pleaser that will not only keep you on the edge of your seat but will pull you right out of it!
