One Man Two Guvnors at Riverhill

Category: Drama


It’s 1963 and Francis Henshall has been sent to Brighton by his new guvnor Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her 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 Stanley, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart.


This hilarious farce, based on Carlo Goldoni’s The Servant of Two Masters, brings Commedia del Arte bang up to date and sets it to the music of the swinging 60’s. 


This open-air  performance  will take place at Riverhill Himalayan Gardens.
