ROCKLAND — An encore broadcast of One Man, Two Guvnors from London’s National Theatre will be presented Thursday, Dec. 26, at the Strand Theatre. Show times are 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
The hilarious West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors features a Tony Award-winning performance from the host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden.
Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect money 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 reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart.
One Man, Two Guvnors was written by Richard Bean, based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni. Songs are by Grant Olding.
Approx. running time: 3 hours, 20 min., including one intermission.
