A fast-paced, hilarious comedy set among the criminal world of 1960s Brighton.

Francis Henshall is down-on-his-luck and permanently hungry but suddenly finds himself employed by two bosses. His first guvnor is Roscoe Crabbe, a revered London gangster in town to claim money owed to him. The second guvnor is Stanley Stubbers, in hiding from the police.

Unfortunately, Roscoe has a secret and history with Stanley, so Francis must keep them apart while earning money from each of them. When Roscoe’s fiancee arrives on the scene, Francis has to work even harder to prevent discovery

As his life plunges further into mayhem and confusion, Francis’s attempts to woo Dolly go awry and he must prove he is an honest, trustworthy man. Simple.

A rollicking farce in which anything goes, this hilarious play will have you laughing in the aisles as Francis goes to increasing lengths to serve two masters and finally get a good meal.
This is a play about people coming together and being friends. The girls share a sense of community, going out together during the week and being there for each other, as they make their way through the happy moments and difficult times.

With Queenie surrounded by loyal Sir Melchett and Nurse Patsy, the Elizabethan court is a world leader in sycophants, backstabbers, plots and schemes and Edmund Blackadder is determined to be the centre of them all.
