WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Nicholas Hytner directs One Man, Two Guvnors by Richard Bean, based on The Servant of Two Masters, by Carlo Goldoni. In Richard Bean's English version of Goldoni's classic Italian comedy, sex, food and money are high on the agenda. Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6000 from his fiancee'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 will go on tour following its run at the Lyttelton Theatre, visiting Plymouth, Salford, Birmingham and Edinburgh.
