Award-winning celebration of British comedy
Richard Bean’s well-loved play sees Francis Henshall becoming a minder to Roscoe Crabbe after being fired from his skiffle band. But when Roscoe finds out he’s actually Rachel Crabbe posing as her own dead brother (who was killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers), Henshall sees his meal ticket and takes a job with Stubbers as well. To avoid discovery, he must keep his two guvnors apart. But it’s all easier said than done. Comic monologues, mounting confusion, and spontaneous audience interaction makes this show not one to be missed. Best available stalls.
