The Man with Two Gaffers
A servant with two gaffers. A woman disguised as her brother. A pig-headed farmer, a pompous vicar, a lovesick lad, and a lass reluctantly engaged to a man who's meant to be dead... Treat yourself to an evening of unadulterated fun with Blake Morrison s inspired adaptation of Carlo Goldoni s classic Italian comedy. Giving the original a distinctly northern twist, this production is set in a small, Victorian Yorkshire town, swapping Venetian waterways for the Leeds-Liverpool Canal. The Man with Two Gaffers
is an uproarious tale of mistaken identity, deception, love and longing, in which a broke and hungry Yorkshireman suddenly lands himself two jobs. But can he really serve two bosses at once and not be rumbled? And imagine the confusion when he discovers they re actually in love with each other!
