One Man, Two Guvnors tells the story of Francis Henshall after he is fired from his skiffle band and caught between two bosses.
One is Rachel Crabbe, who is pretending to be her deceased gangster brother Roscoe after he was murdered by her secret lover Stanley Stubbers.
The other guvnor is the very same Stanley but neither he or Rachel knows the other is in Brighton and Francis must jump between the two without them ever meeting.
David O’Reilly plays the lead Francis and told Time 107.5 there is something for everyone.
“It’s a revival so even if you have seen it before, the production that we are giving is a brand new production with a brand new creative team,” he said.
“I lived in Upminster and Romford for a few years so I have a little ‘Essex touch’ towards it and I think audiences are really going to love this play.”
A live skiffle band will perform a pre-show concert but David says that is not all they do:
“There’s four incredible musicians who play a whole host of instruments and they are situated throughout the show; linking all the wonderful scenes together with glorious pieces of original music by Grant Olding.”
The play is on until Saturday, 19 October and you can book tickets online here.Tags: Romford, Hornchurch, Upminster, Queen's Theatre
