The Man with Two Gaffers

by Blake Morrison
A new adaptation of Goldoni’s
” A Servant of Two Masters”

Directed by Barrie Rutter
Designed by Leslie Travers

A servant with two gaffers
A woman disguised as her brother
A pig-headed farmer, a pompous vicar, a lovesick lad, a lass reluctantly
engaged to a man who’s meant to be dead…….

Treat yourself to an evening of hilarity with Blake Morrison’s brilliant adaptation of Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy, The Servant of Two Masters. Set in a small Yorkshire town in the mid 19th century, this unashamedly northern production swaps Venetian waterways for the Leeds-Liverpool Canal!
