London, England. Swinging 1963. Change is in the air, and Francis is looking to make his mark. In search of work, he finds himself employed by small-time gangster Roscoe, in town to collect a fee from his fiancée’s gangster father. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother, herself in love with Stanley (her brother's killer) who, in turn, becomes our hero's other 'guvnor'. Fighting a mounting sense of confusion, Francis goes out of his way to serve both bosses. Easy, right? One Man, Two Guvnors is a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, slapstick, and glittering one-liners. Richard Bean's hilarious comedy received 5-star reviews from every London newspaper and was the hit of the 2012 Broadway season.

All roles are available.

Francis Henshall (Male, 20-30’s)
An Essex boy driven by his stomach; a bit rough around the edges, but very charming; should be on the heavy-side; incredible comic presence; should be able to do complex physical routines; a teddy-bear quality helps, along with the ability to improvise and turn on a sixpence. A scheming assistant. Puppy, clumsy innocence with an infectious grin. More of a cockney accent.

Stanley Stubbers (Male, 30’s)
A posh public-school boy in love with Rachel; has a very dirty sense of humor, but is still charming and generally decent; good-looking, fit, earnest, utterly confident, and steeped in the arrogance of the upper classes. Posh RP accent.

Harry Dangle (Male, 50-60’s)
The stereotypical corrupt lawyer; loquacious, bombastic, and blustery; extravagant, red-faced, pompous; posh RP accent, which occasionally dips into Cockney

Alan Dangle (Male, 20-39)
An aspiring actor with little common sense; hot-headed and passionate, full of bluster but ineffective; attractive, a bit goofy; dramatic gestures; from Brighton, middle-class London accent, but not Cockney like the Clenches.

Lloyd Boateng (Male, 40-69)
Wise and sanguine owner of a pub; old friend of both Charlie and Rachel; Jamaican; gregarious, helpful;

Charlie “The Duck” Clench (Male, 50-59)
Pauline's father; small-time gangster; streetwise, but not intelligent; weasely, shifty, Can take care of himself in a fight, faint menace behind shark-like grin, has a great, prosaic turn of phrase; Cockney accent

Pauline Clench (Female, 18+)
Sweet, pretty Cockney girl who is not very bright; in love with Alan; despite being dumb and occasionally shrill, she should be somehow appealing; Clench's daughter. Eyes wide with wonder.

Dolly (Female, 20-30’s)
Charlie's accountant; smart and sassy; very sexy and very funny but not dumb; in fact, she's probably the smartest person in the play; gorgeous, flirtatious, curvaceous, a real firecracker; she's Northern so Lancashire or Yorkshire accent, Liverpool would work, too.

Rachel Crabbe (Female, 20-30’s)
A London girl from a criminal family; sharp and quick-
witted, driven by her real love for Stanley; disguised as her dead brother Roscoe; as Roscoe, she is channeling Pinkie in Brighton Rock, the psychotic 1960s gangster, vicious; as Rachel, she is strong-witted, brave, and good; Cockney accent (not too strong)

Ensemble (Male, Female. 18+)
A variety of roles including waiters, porters, maids, guests, etc.
Gareth (Male, 30-40’s)
Head waiter at The Cricketers’ Arms. Efficient and streamlined, oversees operations with a flick of the wrist and a lifted eyebrow.
Alfie (Male)
Playing “ancient” but need a great physical actor. Several pratfalls and physical bits. Waiter. Hard of hearing and nearly blind, cadaverous, shuffles along, back bowed and bewildered.
