One Man, Two Guvnors
One Man, Two Guvnors By Richard Bean - adapted from Carlo Goldoni's Il Servitore Di Due Padroni (Servant Of Two Masters)
A fast-paced, hilarious farce that follows the mixed fortunes of Francis Henshall. Down on his luck and permanently hungry, Francis suddenly finds himself employed by two bosses. His first guvnor is Roscoe Crabbe, a revered London gangster who has, apparently, come to Brighton to claim money owed to him by his fiancee’s father, Charlie Clench. His second boss is Stanley, who is in Brighton hiding from the police. One Man, Two Guvnors is a rollicking farce, which often breaks the fourth wall, as Francis enlists the aid of willing and unwilling audience members in his quest to serve two masters and finally get a good meal.
