The permanently ravenous Francis Henshall has a slight problem. He has two employers whom he must keep from finding out about each other.


One is East End hood Roscoe Crabbe who is now in Brighton to collect a debt from his fiancée’s dad.

The other is Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police, having killed one Roscoe Crabbe. And the Roscoe Crabbe, now in Brighton, is his twin sister Rachel, who is trying to reunite with her boyfriend, Stanley. Did we say a ‘slight problem’?

This modern adaptation by Richard Bean of the 1746 Commedia Dell’Arte classic, ‘Servant of Two Masters’, is a fast-paced laugh-out-loud farce that updates the action to 1960s Brighton. While Francis tries to keep his two guvnors from meeting, he must overcome some minor complications along the way - just a few important letters, a hefty trunk, and serving a simple lunch at the Cricketer’s Arms!

Directed by Tracey Owens and Jo Cooper, the talented cast of ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ features Luke Aspinall, Rory Pollock, Katie Blaxland, Brian Wark, Jarrah Webster, Ronan Barrett, Derek Fisher, Deepika Yerrakalva, John Stericker, Austin Cooper, Georgi Lamond, Michael Smythe and Kirsty Horton.

The season plays from 19 August until 2 September, with evening performances commencing at 8 pm. Matinee performances begin at 2 pm on Sunday, 20 August, Saturday, 26 August and Sunday, 27 August.

Can Francis stop his two guvnors from finding out about each other, keep both his jobs and get a decent meal? Come along and find out!
