Back by the popular demand, the West End and Broadway smash hit 'One Man, Two Guvnors' returns to the stage at the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven, to complete some unfinished business.

The production originally took to the stage in October last year at the Torch, receiving reviews to critical acclaim by both audience members and the press alike for its slapstick comedy and brilliant one-liners.

Unfortunately the run at the time was cut short due to an injury to lead Christian Patterson but he is delighted to taking on the role again of the hapless Francis Henshall.

Richard Bean’s fast-paced, hilarious farce follows the mixed fortunes of Henshall who, down on his luck and permanently hungry, suddenly finds himself employed by two bosses.

“I played Francis Henshall in Peter Doran’s production of One Man, Two Guvnors... Unfortunately the run of the play was cut short as I torn the retinas in both of my eyes!" said Christian.

"It hurt me very deeply not to be able to continue and left me with a sense of unfinished business so when Peter Doran suggested reviving the production later this year I said yes straightaway.”

In this year’s production of the Brighton-based comedy Christian will be joined by a mix of new and familiar faces.

The Torch welcomes back James Mack as public school hoodlum Stanley Stubbers, Charles Angiama as smooth ex-con Lloyd Boateng, the Torch Theatre’s very own Dion Davies swapping frocks for tuxes as the Latin-quoting lawyer Harry Dangle.

Peter Doran, the Torch’s artistic director, will also be reprising his scene-stealing cameo role as decrepit waiter Alfie.

Peter will also be directing the show and is looking forward to treading the boards again:

“Last year was such great fun so it was such a shame to have the run cut short through injury, the show was flying at the time and selling out so it seemed obvious to me that we needed to do it again," he said.

"I can’t wait to get stuck in. And of course, I do have a little cameo role, so I’m looking forward to stretching those acting muscles once again!”

With a hilarious mix of comedy, farce and live music, One Man, Two Guvnors runs at the Torch Theatre from Thursday, October 31, to Saturday, November 16, at various times including a BSL interpreted performance on Thursday, November 7.

Tickets cost £18.50, £16.50 concessions and £8.50 for under 26s available from the Torch Theatre box office on 01646 695267 or
