One Man, Two Guvnors

Thur 12 Sept, 7:30pm

Sat 14 Sept, 2:30pm

A Derby Theatre and Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch Production

Richard Bean’s smash-hit comedy premieres in Derby for a limited run this Autumn. Directed by Sarah Brigham, featuring a side-splitting mix of slapstick comedy, farce and live music by a talented skiffle band, One Man, Two Guvnors is one great night out.

After being fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall is skint and hungry. He manages to secure a new job as a minder for small time gangster Roscoe Crabbe. What Francis doesn’t know, is his new guvnor is really Roscoe’s sister Rachel in disguise, as her own dead brother, who has been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

To further complicate things, Francis nabs a second job working for that very Stanley Stubbers who is hiding from the police. 

All Francis has to do is ensure his two guvnors don’t meet. What could go wrong?

Seen by over 1 million people worldwide, One Man, Two Guvnors has been a runaway hit at the National Theatre, the West End and on Broadway.
