One Man, Two Guvnors

A Bear Pit Theatre Company Production

One Man, Two Guvnors by Richard Bean directed by Associate Artist Nicky Cox


Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 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.

One Man, Two Guvnors was a runaway hit both in London’s West End and on Broadway. Join The Bear Pit Theatre company for an hilarious evening of fun.
