One Man, Two Guvnors by Richard BeanReading this play, I found myself bored by the slapstick nature and comedy but I powered on through to the end.
On the other hand once I saw a live production, I found myself rather enjoying the play as a whole.
I understand there would be no play without the author, but I do believe that there is a lot of room for interpretation and what I enjoyed more about the production than the book was the engaging side- something the book I didn’t find had the power to do.
I would recommend seeing a production rather than just reading the play by itself.

A fresh take on the classic farce A Servant of Two Masters , One Man, Two Guvnors presents slapstick at its finest, with actors falling down stairs, slamming doors, making double entendre and interacting with the audience.
