About this event

Richard Bean’s adaptation of 'The Servant of Two Masters' is set in Brighton in the 1960s, centred on the bumbling Francis Henshall, a minder to both Roscoe Crabbe (a local gangster) and Stanley Stubbers (an upper-class criminal). But Roscoe has been killed by Stanley, and is currently being impersonated by his twin sister Rachel (who is also Stanley's lover!). She is in Brighton to collect £6,000 from Roscoe’s fiancée’s dad. Chaos unfolds as Francis, desperate for a good meal, tries to stop his two guvnors from meeting. Mix in marriage complications, a volatile actor and an 87-year-old waiter with a pacemaker and balance problems, you’ve got a recipe for hilarity.

'One Man, Two Guvnors' won Best Play in 2011 and was called ‘one of the funniest productions in the National's history'. It’s a great celebration of British comedy with laugh-out-loud satire, slapstick and glittering one-liners (there’s even a song at the end!) What more do you want?
