One Man, Two Guvnors

DATES: Until 31st Aug 13
TICKETS: £15.00 - £55.00

Following sell-out seasons at the National Theatre and Adelphi Theatre, smash-hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors opens at Theatre Royal Haymarket from 2 March '11 with a brand new cast lead Owain Arthur as Francis Henshall

In Richard Bean's English version of Carlo Goldoni's classic Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters, sex, food and money are high on the agenda.

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 fiancee'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

Theatre is a platform for entertainment. It is a place for laughter, tears and romance, and at its best, it is also a place for debate. The Theatre Royal Haymarket, known originally as \"The Little Theatre in the Hay\" - designed and constructed in 1720, by John Potter - has come a very long way and is now considered one of the most treasured theatres in the West End. Over the last 180 years, in its various incarnations, the Theatre Royal Haymarket has provided a home for some of the most celebrated events in British theatre history, from the challenging and gritty to the glamorous and classically old. Today, we strive to ensure that the Haymarket continues to provide some of London\'s most memorable theatrical experiences for audiences from around the world.
