One Man, Two Guvnors - Thursday

YMCA theatre cardiff • Thu 21 March 2019 19:30-22:00

One Man, Two Guvnors by Richard Bean, is a delightfully hilarious comedy revolving around a handful of gangsters in 1960s Brighton and one bumbling right-hand-man called Francis Henshall, that causes them a heap of trouble. Francis, having recently been fired from a skiffle band, becomes employed by Rachel Crabbe who is disguised as her ruthless brother Roscoe, believed to have been killed two days before by a gangster lying low. Francis also finds himself employed by another guvnor, Stanley Stubbers, who came to Brighton in secret and happens to be in a relationship with Rachel. With neither Rachel nor Stanley aware that the other has come to Brighton, and Francis believing that he is now the minder of two dangerous and hateful gangsters out for each other's heads, Francis must spend the longest day of his life attempting to keep the two of them apart. He must serve the two of them personally which leads to some side-splitting misunderstandings and hilarious misdeeds that could make Francis' first day on the job also his last.
