About

One Man Two Guvnors –

A larger than life farce that will have audiences laughing until tears, and then laughing some more.

It’s a classic story that we all know and love: fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes assistant to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from the dad of his fiancee. But 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. Right?

One Man Two Guvnors Character Breakdown – 

Charlie “the Duck” Clench (Male 50s-­‐60s) Small-­‐time London gangster that runs a scrap metal company. Streetwise, but not intelligent. Father to Pauline. Cockney accent.

This role has already been cast –  Pauline Clench (Female 20s-­‐30s) Daughter to Charlie. Young, pretty, full of life and VERY stupid. Was engaged to Roscoe (before he died) and now engaged and utterly in love with Alan Dangle. A broad cockney accent.

Alan Dangle (Male 20s-­‐30s) A young aspiring and terribly over dramatic actor with little common sense. Hot-­‐headed and passionate, but ineffective. Engaged to Pauline. Middle-­‐class London accent.

Harry Dangle (Male 40s-­‐60s) Father to Alan Dangle and partner in a shady law firm-­‐ the stereotypical fat crooked lawyer. Constantly trying to sound higher brow than he really is. Posh RP accent, which occasionally dips into cockney.

Lloyd Boateng (Male, 30s-­‐50s) A London/Jamaican ex-­‐con and friend to Charlie Clench. Charismatic, working class with an air of charm. Loyal, warm and owner of “The Cricketers Arms” pub.

Francis Henshall (Male, 20s-­‐40s) An Essex boy driven by his stomach. A bit rough around the edges, but very charming and lovable. A brilliant physical and verbal comedian who is confident with improvisation and audience interaction.

Dolly (Female 20s-­‐40s) Charlie’s strongly feminist bookkeeper. Smart and sassy, she’s had her fair share of men and is a true match for Francis. Northern accent optional.

Rachel Crabbe (Female 20s-­‐30s) London girl from a criminal family. Sharp and quick-­‐witted, driven by her love for Stanley. Spends the play pretending to be her dead twin brother so must be able to play the caricature of a man.

Stanley Stubbers (Male 20s-­‐30s) A posh public-­‐school boy from the Home Counties. Utterly confident and steeped in the arrogance of the upper classes.

Alfie (Any, 18+) The slow and doddering “elderly” waiter played by a younger actor. A great physical comedian. Must be able, willing, and ready to do several prat falls and engage in challenging, choreographed physical comedy. May be double cast as ensemble.

Gareth (Any, 40+) Supercilious, efficient head waiter. Physically adept – helps out with quite a lot of “business”. RP (Received Pronunciation) accent. May be double cast as ensemble.

Ensemble (Any, 18+) A variety of roles.
