Lauren Sturgess / One Man, Two Guvnors

Lauren Sturgess / One Man, Two Guvnors


We’re delighted to have the superb LAUREN STURGESS opening in ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS at Bolton Octagon 26 May – 25 June, before taking it out on tour to Liverpool Playhouse and Keswick’s Theatre by the Lake.

It’s 1963 and Francis Henshall has just been fired from his skiffle band. In search of food and romance, he soon finds himself juggling not one but two new jobs.

What Francis doesn’t know is that his first guvnor, small time crook Roscoe Crabbe, is actually Roscoe’s twin sister Rachel, in disguise as her dead brother, who was killed by her boyfriend, Stanley Stubbers. To complicate matters further, Francis’ second boss is none other than Stanley Stubbers, on the run and desperate to be reunited with Rachel.

All Francis needs to do is keep his two guvnors apart – simple!

What follows is a hilarious mix of slapstick, farce and live music. This side-splittingly funny, new production of the global hit comedy is not to be missed.
