One Man, Two Guvnors Auditions @ MSUN/MAT Theatre

Out-of-work musician Francis Henshall becomes separately employed by two men – Roscoe Crabbe, a gangster, and Stanley Stubbers, an upper class twit. Francis tries to keep the two from meeting, to avoid each of them learning about the other. Complicating events, Roscoe is really Rachel Crabbe in disguise, her twin brother Roscoe having been killed by her gangster boyfriend, Stanley. Complicating events still further is local mobster Charlie the Duck, who has arranged his daughter’s engagement to Roscoe despite her preference for an amateur actor. Even further complications are prompted by several letters, a very heavy trunk, several unlucky audience volunteers, an extremely elderly waiter and Francis’ pursuit of his twin passions: Dolly (Charlie’s feminist bookkeeper), and food.
