Storyline

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée's dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who's 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 re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple. Written by National Theatre Live

A laugh a minute
4 April 2020 | by millmill-04758See all my reviews

An absolutely fantastic production of a hilarious play. I laughed until I ached. James Corden stars at what he is best at involving audience members and breaking the fourth wall. Other cast members put in amazing physical comedy performances. Would recommend this to anyone.
