One Man, Two Guvnors

by Richard Bean

Brighton, England. 1963. Change is in the air, and Francis Henshall. Fired from a skiffle band is in search of work.  He finds himself employed by small-time gangster Roscoe Crabbe, in town to collect a fee from his fiancée’s gangster father. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother, herself in love with Stanley Stubbers (her brother's killer) who, in turn, becomes our hero's other 'guvnor'. Fighting a mounting sense of confusion, Francis goes out of his way to serve both bosses. But with the distractions of a pneumatic bookkeeper and select members of the criminal fraternity (not to mention his own mammoth appetite) to contend with, how long can he keep them apart? The hit of the 2012 Broadway season.  "Splendidly silly…satanic and seraphic, dirty-minded and utterly innocent." —NY Times.
