The Stage Club is proud to present the Singapore premiere of the smash hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.
In Richard Bean’s English version of Goldoni’s classic comedy, A Servant of Two Masters, sex, food and money are high on the agenda.
It's 1963 and the location is Brighton. Two underworld gangs are about to be united via a marriage. However, Rosco, one of a pair of twins, has been killed. So, Pauline (the daughter of gangster Charlie “the Duck” Clench), wants to marry Alan, a wannabe actor who is the son of Charlie's lawyer, Harry Dangle. Then Francis arrives. He has just been fired from his skiffle band and has become the new minder of the ‘deceased’ gangster, but then it appears that Rosco isn't dead after all. IT’S COMPLICATED! The marriage can take place as planned, but Pauline and Alan aren't happy. Francis repairs to a local pub where he’s offered a second job by a toff called Stanley. And here's where the title comes in – Francis now has two 'guvnors' who must be served yet kept ignorant of the fact that Francis is moonlighting.
The original National Theatre production in London featured James Corden in the lead as Francis before transferring to Broadway where it ran for several months to great acclaim.
Featuring an explosive cast, live music, audience participation and directed by Nick Perry (The History Boys, The Real Thing, Out of Order, Black Comedy and Arcadia), it promises to be an evening of uninhibited entertainment.
