A Lake District Theatre is set to continue its strong performance season with a popular comedy coming later this year. 

One Man Two Guvnors is set to come to Theatre By The Lake between July and September this year. 

Richard Bean’s much-loved modern farce, an adaptation of the classic A Servant to Two Masters, promises a riotous mix of slapstick, hilarity and live music. 

The show will run from Wednesday, July 20 until Saturday, September 3. 

Director, Lotte Wakeham said: "I’m absolutely thrilled to finally announce our stellar company of actors for One Man Two Guvnors. 

"I can’t wait to bring this feel-good, fast-paced knockabout farce to the stage. It is a modern classic and promises to be a great night out, with hysterical physical comedy and brilliant music which will transport the audience back to the 1960s. I’m certain it will be a real crowd-pleaser. 

"We are delighted to be co-producing the show with our friends at Liverpool Everyman and Theatre by the Lake, so this smash-hit comedy can be enjoyed by audiences across the North West this summer."

The cast also includes Alexander Bean as Lloyd; Matthew Ganley UK Theatre award-winning actor (and well-known to Keswick audiences) Polly Lister will be returning to TBTL as Charlie amongst many others. 

In his professional stage debut, Jordan Pearson of Ladhood on BBC and Coronation Street on ITV will star in the role of Francis. 

The two ‘guvnors’ – Rachel Crabbe and Stanley Stubbers, will be played by Siobhan Athwal and Laurie Jamieson respectively.

Set in 1963, this farcical tale follows the antics of recently fired Francis Henshall, as he attempts to juggle duties for two new ‘guvnors’, trying to keep them apart to avoid discovery of his double life, with hysterical results.

Tickets start from £10 at Theatre by the Lake and are already on sale in all venues.
