Directed by Shilarna Stokes
Richard Bean’s smash-hit comedy comes to Ohio State from London, via Broadway. Perpetually hungry and down-on-his-luck Francis Henshall finds himself working for two criminals at the same time. One is a small-time gangster, the other is an upper-class twit. Both are in hiding in the seaside holiday town of Brighton, and Francis must do all he can to keep them apart. Unbeknownst to Francis, his two “guvnors” are linked together in a hilarious plot involving romance, conspiracy, and a colorful cast of misfits.
