A great mix of satire, spoof, slapstick and skiffle music makes One Man, Two Guvnors a sure-fire success.

Farce relies on excellent timing which is achieved by a talented cast and astute director Chris Jordan as Eastbourne Theatres, in association with Talking Scarlet, present Richard Bean's acclaimed comedy based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carloe Goldoni.

Criminals and other bizarre individuals gather in 1960s Brighton where Francis Henshall, fired from a skiffle band, takes jobs with two demanding bosses. Aidan O'Neill excels in the role that won James Corden a Tony Award, especially when making asides to the audience from which he ropes in three 'volunteers'.

There are also impressive performances from Ruth Westley and Dylan Turner as his guvnors. Ruth's character Rachel Crabbe impersonates her dead brother Roscoe, who's been killed by her boyfriend – Henshall's other boss! George Jennings and Peter Lovstrom often steal the limelight. Jennings hams it up as a young wannabe actor, while Lovstrom, playing a geriatric waiter, is the fall-guy in several visual gags.

There are other fine performances from Patric Kearns, Jessica Warbeck, Trevor Georges, Celeste Collier, Matt Devitt and Callum Hughes. The cast also shine as singers and musicians.
