Get slangy, win One Man, Two Guvnors tickets

One Man, Two Guvnors, which is currently playing at The Civic Theatre as part of the Auckland Arts Festival, has received a host of five star reviews around the world, with The Guardian saying that it was "a triumph of visual and verbal comedy,", Everything Theatre describing it as "one of the most side-splittingly hilarious productions ever to be staged in London" and StopPress saying "it's definitely a stage production". Benevolent taxi media company Taxi Impact has offered up a couple of tickets to the show and even though it's set in Brighton, the East End is close enough, so give us your best bit of Cockney rhyming slang and you could be the lucky recipient of a couple of $118 Lemony Snickets.

Here's the blurb: 

One Man, Two Guvnorshappily hijacks the plot of an 18th century comedy The Servant of Two Mastersby Carlo Goldoni. Written by Richard Bean with songs by Grant Olding, it’s an outrageously funny mix of farce, sing-alongs, Python-esque absurdity and slapstick that has audiences from New York to London in blissful fits of laughter. 

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe … but Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother… who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a job with Stanley Stubbers. To prevent discovery Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.

Tag along with Francis to 1960s Brighton, England, lovingly recreated in all its groovy glory by the remarkable direction of Nicholas Hytner and the punchy, rockabilly sounds of live skiffle band The Craze.

Diversity and inclusion in action: Why Spark gets behind the Pride community

One of Aotearoa's biggest companies, Spark, is a firm supporter of the LGBTQI+ community through its annual Pride advertising campaigns, its partnership with charity OUTline, and its diversity and inclusion values within the company. Head of brand at Spark New Zealand Sarah Williams explains why the company chose to champion this social issue, how these campaigns attract both the loudest praise and the greatest vilification from New Zealanders, and why that it makes it the most important cause the company champions.
