One Man, Two Guvnors is a new play by Richard Bean that was first seen at the National Theatre in the summer of 2011. After becoming a smash-hit success and selling out every single show at the National, it moved to the West End and made its home the Adelphi Theatre.
Based on the Italian comedy ‘The Servant of Two Masters’ by Carlo Goldoni, One Man, Two Guvnors is an English version of the play, set in Brighton in the 1960s. The central character is a man named Francis who has to keep two guvnors apart in order for their secrets to remain concealed. But can he do it?
Fresh from his success on hit BBC comedy, Gavin and Stacey, James Corden played the lead role of Francis Henshall at the Adelphi Theatre, which sold out its run. At the Theatre Royal Haymarket production the role is played by Owain Arthur, alongside Jodie Prenger as the comic leads.
