Brighton, England. 1963. Fired from a skiffle band, Francis Henshall finds himself employed by small-time gangster Roscoe Crabbe, in town to collect a fee from his fiancee’s gangster father. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother, herself in love with Stanley Stubbers (her brother’s killer) who, in turn, becomes our hero’s other ‘guvnor’. Fighting a mounting sense of confusion and his own mammoth appetite, Francis goes out of his way to serve both bosses. This hilarious comedy received 5-star reviews from every London newspaper and was the hit of the 2012 Broadway season.

When were did last work on an RCT show, or is this your first time?
I’ve never worked with RCT before. I have been on stage at HSU and Plays in the Park. I have also done properties design at HSU as well as been an assistant scenic designer and assistant technical director.
Tell us about your role in the production.
I am the properties designer. You really don’t notice how isolated we are in this area until you are trying to find soup tureens and a cricket bat, but it was challenge I enjoyed.
What attracted you do doing his show?
I have worked with a good deal of the cast and crew before, and this show is just so all over the place and crazy that it was hard not to fall in love with it from the moment I started researching it.
What do you hope audiences come away with as the leave the theatre?
I really hope the audience will come away with a smile and laughs. I hope they enjoy the quick hop across the pond to Brighton, England and fall in love with the show like I did.
