CAST MEMBERS DEEP IN REHEARSALS AS THE TORCH THEATRE PREPARES FOR THE OPENING NIGHT OF ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS
Rehearsals are well underway for the forthcoming Torch Theatre production of One Man, Two Guvnors ahead of opening night next week! The cast have been rehearsing together since meeting for the first time on Monday 14 October in the theatre’s Junction space. Under the creative eye and direction of the Torch Theatre’s Artistic Director, Peter Doran (who is also making a cameo appearance in the show), the cast members have been put through their paces as the smash hit West End and Broadway production is brought back to life once again in the heart of Milford Haven.

The curtain for One Man, Two Guvnors will go up on Thursday 31 October and Peter believes this production will be the must see hit of the Autumn with theatre audiences:
“Autumn is a very exciting time for us here at the Torch Theatre as it’s the period when we produce our own shows. We kick off our season with the wonderful One Man Two Guvnors, one of the biggest theatre hits over the past 30 years, it’s a pleasure to produce it here in Milford Haven, and we really hope you enjoy the production as much as we have rehearsing it.”

The Torch Theatre’s production of One Man, Two Guvnors stars local actor Christian Patterson as Francis Henshall, an out-of-work skiffle player who becomes separately employed by two guvnors; gangster Roscoe Crabbe (Emma Mulkern) and upper class criminal Stanley Stubbers (James Mack). To earn an extra meal ticket and to avoid being discovered, Henshall must keep these notorious guvnors apart with hilarious consequences.

The production originally took to the stage in October 2018 at the Torch Theatre, 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 Christian but he is delighted to taking on the role again of the hapless Francis Henshall: “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! 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 straight away.”

Joining Christian on stage will be Sarah Annis who plays the r
