One Man, Two Guvnors

£15 - £55.00, plus concessions

The National Theatre's award-winning production is a glorious celebration of British comedy. Richard Bean's play is a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners.



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 his fiancee's dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who's 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 re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.
