National Theatre Live Encore: One Man, Two Guvnors
By Richard Bean
Based on 'The Servant of Two Masters' by Carlo Goldoni, with songs by Grant Olding
Directed by Nicholas Hytner

Sunday, December 8 at 2pm
Ethel M. Barber Theater
30 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden, the hilarious West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

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.

Running Time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including intermission
