Bart Players are delighted to present Richard Bean’s gloriously funny One Man, Two Guvnors.
Out of work, and permanently ravenous, Francis becomes minder to Roscoe , an East End hood. But, Roscoe is in fact Rachel, Roscoe’s sister posing as her own dead brother, killed by her boyfriend Stanley. Determined to find enough money to eat, Francis accepts a job from a second employer. The upper class twit who employs Francis is none other than Rachel’s boyfriend Stanley, hiding out from the police and attempting to reunite with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple. Or is it?
Matters are complicated by Charlie the Duck, a local mobster, Roscoe’s fiance Pauline, who is determined to marry demented, over-the-top actor Alan, the mix up of several letters, a heavy trunk and an extremely elderly waiter!
