This laugh-out-loud farce tells the story of Francis Henshall, a man down on his luck and searching for work when he finds himself suddenly employed by two small-time, rival gangsters.  Employed by “guvnors” Roscoe Crabbe (who’s really Rachel, posing as her dead brother) and Stanley Stubbers (her brother’s killer), Francis goes out of his way to serve both bosses.  But how long can he keep them apart?  As he becomes embroiled in the comic chaos, he realizes that working for both ‘men’ is more than he bargained for!  The Daily Mail called One Man, Two Guvnors “The most glorious comedy on the planet.”

One Man, Two Guvnors is a hilarious show,” commented Director Philip Powell. “Audiences are really going to enjoy this laugh-out-loud funny farce, and these talented actors sell the wild and wacky plot at every turn.”
