Following sell-out seasons at the National Theatre and Adelphi Theatre, the brilliant comedy One Man, Two Guvnors is now playing at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
In Richard Bean’s English version of Carlo Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters, high on the agenda are sex, food and money.
Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small-time East End crook, now on the South Coast in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancee’s dad. But Roscoe is in reality his sister Rachel posing as her dead brother, who has 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 up a second job with Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To avoid discovery, Francis needs to keep his two guvnors apart.
“Rufus Hound has a wonderful rapport with the audience and his unscripted interaction with some of the audience members, is witty and very funny.” Josephine Kime
