Regent Rep in Christchurch’s production for 2019 is Richard Bean’s smash hit comedy, One Man, Two Guvnors is at the Regent in Christchurch from 3–5 October including a Saturday matinee.
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. However, 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!
One Man Two Guvnors is based on the classic Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni. This new English version is by prizewinning playwright Richard Bean, with songs and music by Grant Olding and with sex, food and money high on the agenda.
Mags4Dorset has teamed up with the Regent Centre in Christchurch to offer two tickets for One Man, Two Guvnors for Thursday 3 October at 7.30pm.
For a chance to win, all you have to do is answer the following question:
What is the name of Roscoe’s sister?
