One Man Two Guvnors

Starting 31st Aug 2021 See all Dates for this event

Based on Carlo Goldoni’s comedy ‘The Servant of Two Masters’ writer Richard Bean’s play is a delight. Slapstick, silliness, song and satire all come together to create this glorious celebration of British comedy.


It is 1963 and fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6000 from his fiancée’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?

Tuesday 31 August to Saturday 4 September 2021 7:30pm & 2:30pm Saturday matinee


Tickets £7- £14. No booking fee.
