Brighton, England. 1963. Hungry and in need of work, Francis Henshall is employed by his ‘guvnor’ number one—a small-time crook named Roscoe Crabbe, in town to collect money from Charlie “The Duck” Clench, the gangster father of Roscoe’s fiancée, Pauline. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own twin brother—recently killed in a fight with Rachel’s boyfriend, Stanley Stubbers. Roscoe’s arrival (and apparent resurrection!) wreaks havoc on the marital arrangements for Pauline, who had quickly fallen for Alan, the actor son of Harry Dangle, the family lawyer and fixer. When Stubbers arrives in Brighton, Francis offers his service to a second guvnor, prompting a whirlwind of mistaken identities and farcical hijinks. As the comic confusion mounts, Francis fights to feed his mammoth appetites for food and a romance of his own, all while struggling to serve two guvnors.

Richard Bean's hilarious comedy received 5-star reviews from every London newspaper and was the hit of the 2012 Broadway season, bringing a Tony Award to James Corden, host of the The Late Late Show, for his portrayal of Francis. "Splendidly silly…satanic and seraphic, dirty-minded and utterly innocent." —NY Times. "…lifts audiences from mere happiness to eye-watering, comic hysteria." —Variety. "The most glorious comedy on the planet." —Daily Mail (London). "If you're not having a good time at this show, you may be on the wrong medication." —Hollywood Reporter.
