From London to New York, critics and audiences have laughed and praised the play. It is based on “The Servant of Two Masters” by Carlo Goldoni and set in the swinging 1960s in Brighton, England.

Francis, a failed musician with an insatiable appetite, finds himself in the employ of both the murderous Stanley Stubbers and the mysterious Roscoe Crabbe. But Roscoe is really Rachel Crabbe, posing as her own dead brother, herself in love with Stanley, her brother’s killer.

Throw in an old man with an unpredictable pacemaker, an arrogant actor, a host of other loony characters and a live band, and you have an evening that will leave you laughing all the way home.

The cast includes Michael Bernard, Paul Canter, Jay Carlander, David Hodges,  Elaine Pazaski, Ivan Pelly, Shannon Saleh, Justin Stark, Tiffany Story, Matt Tavianini, Dillon Yuhasz and Haley Yuhasz.

Performances from Oct. 13-28 will be at 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays through Saturdays and at 2:30 p.m. on Sundays, with previews at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 11 and 12.

Ticket prices range from $10 to $26.
