As you know I do not usually promote things I haven’t seen, however many of my friends saw this in the West End and have raved about it so much that I am sticking my neck out on the line a bit here and suggest that you run along to The Hawth, Crawley and book tickets for the National Theatre’s award winning comedy, One Man Two Guvnors. A review will follow, but as this is only on for a week, I don’t want you to miss your chance!
ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS
Cast includes Gavin Spokes reprising his West End role as the loveable chancer Francis Henshall accompanied by Shaun Williamson, Emma Barton and Jasmyn Banks from Eastenders.
Directed by Nicholas Hytner, One Man, Two Guvnors tells the hilarious story of Francis Henshall who, fired from his skiffle band, 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. It has been described as a glorious celebration of British comedy – a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners.
The acclaimed production is based on Richard Bean’s version of Carlo Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy, The Servant of Two Masters and has songs by Grant Olding, performed by The Craze. Now seen by over 1 million people worldwide, this internationally-acclaimed smash-hit, hailed as ‘the funniest show on the planet’ by The Mail and a ‘comic classic’ by The Guardian, will be in Crawley for one week only so do’t miss your chance to see it – book now!
