Name: PACP One Man, Two Guvnors
Date: May 5, 2023 - May 21, 2023
Event Description:
Port Angeles Community Players presents One Man, Two Guvnors, an award-winning uproarious British farce that takes place in 1963 Brighton England. It’s all based on the escapades of Francis Henshall (Mark Valentine), a failed skiffle player, who is obsessively hungry and just looking for his next meal. Fate suddenly takes a turn for the better when Francis finds himself employed by two guvnors. All Francis needs to do is keep them a secret from each other to earn double the money and enjoy all the food he could want. Sounds simple. Unfortunately, the two guvnors have their own baggage in life, causing Francis some unique challenges. One guvnor, Rachel Crabbe (Poet XIX), is disguised as her dead gangland twin Roscoe so she can collect a debt owed by a gangster, Charlie “The Duck” Clench (Dean Behrens), to be paid upon his (i.e., Roscoe) engagement to The Ducks daughter Pauline (Wesley Vollmer). The other guvnor, snooty toff Stanley Stubbers (Fred Robinson), killer of Roscoe, is hiding from the police and is secretly the lover of Rachel. Neither knows the other is in Brighton, and Francis must keep it that way. Sounds doable, but not simple. Despite the resourcefulness of Francis, he reaches the limits of his talents when trying to serve both guvnors dinner simultaneously in adjacent rooms. Bouncing between his two employers like a shuttlecock, he finally finds help from willing and unwilling audience members. Sounds impossible, but Francis (like Winston Churchill said) believes “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
