The National Theatre’s hit production of One Man, Two Guvnors celebrates its third year in London this week by releasing an additional 150,000 tickets.
Adapted by Richard Bean from Carlo Goldoni’s classic comedy The Servant Of Two Masters, the production, which is now booking to 1 March 2014, follows food-lover Francis Henshall who, after he has been fired from his skiffle band, takes two jobs with two small time crooks. All he has to do is stop them finding out about each other.
The award-winning show, which premiered at the National’s Lyttelton theatre in 2011 before moving to the Adelphi theatre and later to its current home at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, currently features a cast including Rufus Hound, Sam Alexander, Martin Barrass, David Benson, Ian Burfield, Rhona Croker, Amy Cudden, Derek Elroy, Harry Kershaw, Kelly Price and Hugh Sachs, with casting for the new booking period to be announced at a later date.
Directed by the National Theatre’s Director Nicholas Hytner, One Man Two Guvnors has been seen by more than one million people worldwide in countries from the USA to New Zealand.
