Recently fired, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time gangster, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from the dad of his fiancee. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who has been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at The Cricketers Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.

Brought to you by local stars, Sound Ideas Theatre Company.

By Richard Bean, based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, with songs by Grant Olding
