Details: This season of National Theatre Live began with One Man, Two Guvnors, which was hailed by the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph as “a triumph of visual and verbal comedy. One of the funniest productions in the National’s history.” In this new play, actor James Corden, who won the Tony Award for this performance, is reunited with National Theatre Director, Nicholas Hytner, for the first time since the worldwide hit The History Boys. This slapstick comedy by Richard Bean is a riotous take on Goldoni’s Italian classic, The Servant of Two Masters, where sex, food and money are high on the agenda. Set in 1960’s Brighton, expect a live skiffle band, stellar cast and unrelenting, unashamed British humor. National Theatre Live brings you the best of British theatre, broadcast from London to a world-wide audience via satellite.

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.
