One Man Two Guvnors

One Man, Two Guvnors is a fast-paced, hilarious farce that follows the mixed fortunes of Francis Henshall. Down on his luck and permanently hungry, Francis suddenly finds himself employed by two bosses. His first guvnor is Roscoe Crabbe, a revered London gangster who has, apparently, come to Brighton to claim money owed to him by his fiancee’s father, Charlie Clench. However it soon becomes clear that Roscoe is, in fact, Roscoe's twin sister Rachel Crabbe in disguise. Roscoe was killed by Rachel’s boyfriend, Stanley Stubbers, and she wants the money to flee the country with Stanley.

Unfortunately for Francis, his second boss is Stanley, who does not know that Rachel is in Brighton. Stanley is hiding from the police, waiting to be reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery and earn money from both guvnors, Francis must keep Rachel and Stanley apart.

Meanwhile, Roscoe’s fiancee and Charlie’s daughter, Pauline Clench, must keep Rachel’s disguise a secret, risking her own future happiness with wannabe thespian, Alan Dangle. As Francis’s world plunges into further mayhem and confusion, his attempts to woo Dolly, Charlie’s bookkeeper, go awry and he must prove to her that he is a good, honest man.

The Full Monty - The Broadway Musical

Based on the cult hit film of the same name, The Full Monty, a ten-time Tony Award nominee, is filled with honest affection, engaging melodies and the most highly anticipated closing number of any show. 

While spying on their wives at a ‘Girls' Night Out’, a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo sees how much they enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness and prejudices, the men come to discover that they're stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to ‘let it go’.

The Full Monty is a story full of heart. With a raucous mix of razor-sharp humor and toe-tapping pizzazz, this heartwarming, upbeat comedy is a must for any theatre goer.

Into the Woods

Straight after the phenomenal success of Urinetown. Theatre Ink now brings you James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s fractured fairy tale Into the Woods

An ambivalent Cinderella?

A blood-thirsty Little Red Riding Hood? 

A Prince Charming with a roving eye? 

A Witch…who raps? 

When a Baker and his wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell. Swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk). 

Everyone’s wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results. What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy in the style of The Princess Bride becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.

Urinetown

Urinetown

A side-splitting send-up of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.

Winner of three TONY Awards, three Outer Critic’s Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America’s greatest art forms.

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he’s had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.
