This September, Blackburn Drama Club present One Man, Two Guvnors by Richard Bean at Blackburn Empire Theatre.
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 the dad of his fiancée.
But Roscoe is really his sister, Rachel, posing as her own 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 a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be reunited with Rachel.
To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.
Based on the classic Italian comedy, The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, in this new English version by prizewinning playwright, Richard Bean.
Blackburn Empire Theatre presents ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ from Wednesday 25th to Saturday 28th September 2019 at 7.30 pm. Tickets are £12.
