One Man, Two Guvnors

21,000+ Reviews has the highest-rated customer service of any bookstore in the world


Richard Bean's English version 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 is dead, killed by Stanley Stubbers and being impersonated by his sister Rachel, who is also Stanley's girlfriend, and in Brighton to collect GBP6,000 from Roscoe's fiancee's dad. Chaos unfolds as Francis tries to stop the two 'guvnors' from meeting and everyone else tries to hide their real identities. Richard Bean's award-winning play is a glorious celebration of British comedy: laugh-out-loud satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners. One Man, Two Guvnors opened at the National Theatre in May 2011, before transferring to the West End and embarking on a successful UK tour. It won Best Play in the Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2011.
