One Man, Two Guvnors returns to the West End starring James Corden

Richard Bean’s smash-hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors returns to the London stage in late 2023, reuniting director Nicholas Hytner and James Corden.

Richard Bean’s award-winning play, adapted from Carlo Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters, is a glorious celebration of British comedy – a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners.

Dates and venue for One Man, Two Guvnors to be announced.

What's the story of One Man, Two Guvnors?

Photo by Johan Persson Congratulations to One Man, Two Guvnors, the National Theatre's international hit play that has passed an important milestone at the historic Theatre Royal, Haymarket in London. 17 October 2013 sees the show become the longest-running play ever at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket. One Man, Two Guvnors recently announced that it will end its run at the theatre on 1 March 2014, but not before having reached this important date. A number of new cast members recently joined the show including the return of Owain Arthur as Francis Henshall, who took over from the show's originating lead James Corden when he took the play to Broadway. Owain Arthur is joined by Angela Griffin as Dolly, Kellie Shirley as Pauline Clench, Peter Caulfield as Alfie, Dominic Thorburn as Alan Dangle, Sam Alexander as Stanley Stubbers, David Benson as Gareth, Ian Burfield as Charlie Clench, Amy Cudden as Rachel Crabbe, Derek Elroy as Lloyd Boateng and Hugh Sachs as Harry Dangle. Now in its third year at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, Nicholas Hytner’s production of Richard Bean’s version of Carlo Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters has proved a major hit for the National having toured the UK twice, smashed Broadway and just completed an international tour. The Theatre Royal Haymarket dates back to 1720 and is the third-oldest London theatre still in use. The theatre has presided over a number of firsts, including the first theatre in London to hold a matinee performance in 1873, a custom that was swiftly adopted by all other theatres. Other long-running plays at the theatre include Yellow Sands in 1926 and 1927 starring Ralph Richardson which ran for 610 performances.
