One Man, Two Guvnors: Hull
Hull New Theatre
Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother – who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a job with one Stanley Stubbers – but to prevent discovery, he must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple? Not really... The National Theatre’s award-winning comedy One Man, Two Guvnors is embarking on its biggest-ever tour of the UK and Ireland, and visiting Hull New Theatre in June 2014. Now seen by over 1 million people worldwide, this internationally acclaimed smash-hit is a glorious celebration of British comedy – a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners. It's directed by Nick Hytner and Written by Richard Bean. It's based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, and features songs by Grant Olding.
