The Reject Theatre Company presents: One Man, Two Guv'nors
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.
2nd - 5th October, Brentwood Theatre, Shenfield Road, Brentwood CM15 8AG

Who are the The Reject Theatre Company?
The Rejects were originally formed in 1988 by its founding members Stephen Emery, who is now Stephen Moyer and can be seen presently in The Gifted, Barry Hester and Kevin Richards. Bringing a fresh new approach to the theatre they performed to critical acclaim The Long and the Short and The Tall, Bouncers, Twelve Angry Men, Private Wars and The Dumb Waiter amongst others.
In the 90s the members pursued their separate careers but recently Kevin and Barry decided to bring the company back to life again. So…. the first of the newly reformed Rejects played a revival of their smash hit Bouncers in August 2017 at The Headgate Theatre, Colchester and again in October 2017 at Zinc Arts Theatre in Chipping Ongar, the Palace Theatre in Westcliff on Sea, Upstairs at the Gatehouse Highgate, London, and more recently at the Public Hall in Witham, Essex where once again they received an outstanding reviews.
As well as the revival of Bouncers the company have recently brought their version of the hilarious play, A Bunch of Amateurs, written by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman,to various local theatres (a sell out in Colchester’s Headgate Theatre) and the last production of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice played to audiences in Colchester and Brentwood, where it was very well received.
Their latest production of Boeing Boeing by Marc Camoletti brought the house down at the Headgate Theatre in October 2018 and now they are delivering the hilarious romp One Man, Two Guv’nors to the Brentwood Theatre, this autumn.
