Description

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time

East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from the dad of his fiancee. But Roscoe is

really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who has been killed by her boyfriend

Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at The Cricketers Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra

meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and

waiting to be reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors

apart. Simple.

Based on the classic Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, in this new

English version by prizewinning playwright Richard Bean, with songs and music by Grant

Olding, sex, food and money are high on the agenda. One Man, Two Guvnors opened at the

National Theatre 17th May 2011 to critical acclaim, before transferring to the West End and

embarking on a successful UK tour. It is also shortlisted for the 2011 Evening Standard Theatre

Best New Play and the Best Night Out Award
