National Theatre: One Man, Two Guvnors
26 September @ 19:00 - 22:00
SOLD OUT (see encore dates) | £10
As part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday celebrations we will be showing One Man, Two Guvnors (original shown in 2011) on Thursday 26th September at 7.00pm.
Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden.
This hilarious West End and Broadway hit was written by Richard Bean, based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, with songs by Grant Olding.
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.
