Synopsis

BEST NEW PLAY, CRITICSCIRCLE AWARD (2011)

EVENING STANDARD AWARD (2011)

OUTER CRITICSCIRCLE AWARD (2012)

The original West End production of one of the most successful comedies ever staged by Britain’s illustrious National Theatre tours to Melbourne, directed by Nicholas Hytner.

Francis Henshall is hungry. He desperately needs a job after being sacked from his skiffle band. And if two jobs come his way, why shouldn’t he take both? So Francis becomes the minder of Roscoe Crabbe, a vicious London bovver boy, but he’s also running errands around Brighton for a chinless wonder going by the name of Stanley Stubbers. Two guvnors, two pay days, two meal tickets. And as long as they don’t meet each other – it’s money for jam, times two!

Richard Bean’s multi-award-winning play is a glorious celebration of the best of British comedy – a unique laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and sparkling one-liners.
