ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS

by Richard Bean

Based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni

With songs by Grant Olding

 

Black RAT Productions present this deliriously funny original version of Richard Bean’s fast-paced, riotous farce.

The place: Brighton
The time: The Swinging 60’s

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 fiancée… 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.

This brand new production of Richard Bean’s West End and Broadway smash-hit (originally featuring James Corden), is a glorious celebration of comedy.
Featuring a rib-tickling mix of songs, slapstick and brilliant one-liners, this is a theatrical experience not to be missed!

A Black RAT Productions, Blackwood Miners’ Institute and RCT Theatres co-production supported by Arts Council Wales
