Ely Amateur Dramatic Society is opening its 2017 season by bringing West End comedy hit ‘One Man Two Guvnors’ to The Maltings in Ely.

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 the dad of his fiancée. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel, posing as her own dead brother, who has 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 reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple!

The show runs from February 9 to 11; performances start at 7.30pm.

Tickets, £11 each, available from or from Burrows Bookshop by calling 01353 669759.
