A MUST-SEE, LAUGH-OUT-LOUD COMEDY
One Man, Two Guvnors is a play by Richard Bean, an English adaptation of Servant of Two Masters, a 1743 Commedia dell'arte style comedy play by the Italian playwright Carlo Goldoni. The play replaces the Italian period setting of the original with Brighton in 1963. When the play opened at the National Theatre in 2011, with James Corden in the leading role, it met with widespread critical acclaim.
The Guardian gave it 5 stars, saying that it was "A triumph of visual and verbal comedy. One of the funniest productions in the National's history."
The Daily Telegraph described it as "the feelgood hit of the Summer." The Independent wrote that it is a "massive hit" and
London's Evening Standard as "a surefire hit". Blogging site Everything Theatre described it as "one of the most side-splittingly hilarious productions ever to be staged in London".
Set in sleazy Brighton in the 1960s, "One Man, Two Guvnors" is a glorious celebration of British comedy featuring a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners. This internationally acclaimed smash-hit has been seen by over one million people worldwide.

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 …
