By Richard Bean, based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni
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.
In the National Theatre’s new version of Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy, sex, food and money are high on the agenda.
Following his success with Gavin and Stacey, James Corden is reunited with National Theatre Director Nicholas Hytner for the first time since the worldwide hit The History Boys.
