Coming up at The Crescent
One Man Two Guvnors 22 - 29 Sep
(The Crescent Theatre Company)
Richard Bean’s hilarious adaptation of Carlo Goldini’s 18th century play is set in Brighton, 1963.
Bumbling Francis Henshall, sacked from a skiffle-band and permanently hungry, becomes separately employed by two men: Roscoe Crabbe, a gangster, and the ‘privately educated’ criminal, Stanley Stubbers. Francis is desperate that neither master should know about the other!
Larger-than-life characters create sub-plots verging on the absurd, as confusion is piled on confusion in this fast-paced spectacle of slap-stick, songs and brilliant one-liners!
Boys 22 Sep
(Lion Theatre Company and Fourth Wall Theatre Company)
It's a matter of days before Benny, Mack, Timp and Cam have to move out of their student flat. The boys find mess piling up around them as they step out into an unwelcoming world and they start to wonder if there's any point in getting older.
Before that though, there's going to be one hell of a party. It's hot. There'll be girls. Predict a riot.
