WhatsOnStage logo
Last night we returned to the Theatre Royal, Haymarket for our second Whatsonstage.com Outing to One Man, Two Guvnors, the multi-award winning comedy by Richard Bean that has caused a sensation of both sides of the Atlantic.

After the show we were joined by Bean and the principal cast members Jodie Prenger, Gemma Whelan, Owain Arthur and Martin Barrass for a lively Q&A, which you can listen to below...

The play, adapted from Goldoni's A Servant of Two Masters, sees Francis Henshall become minder to the notorious London gangster Roscoe Crabbe.

But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead twin brother – who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a job with one Stanley Stubbers – but to prevent discovery, he must keep his two guvnors apart. How hard could it be?!

Owain Arthur plays Henshall - the role created by Whatsonstage.com and Tony Award-winner James Corden - and is joined in the cast by Jodie Prenger, Hannah Spearritt, Gemma Whelan, Martin Barrass, David Benson, Nigel Betts, Derek Elroy, Gerard Horan, Daniel Ings, Matthew Woodyatt and Ben Mansfield.
