Director Nicholas Hytner's National Theatre production of One Man, Two Guvnors, recorded live earlier in 2011, is based on Carlo Goldoni's classic Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters. In Richard Bean's wildly funny English version, sex, food and money are high on the agenda. Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall (James Corden, returning to the National for the first time since The History Boys) becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel (Jemima Rooper) posing as her own dead brother, who's been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers (Oliver Chris). Holed up at The Cricketers' Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with 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.
