\'THE FUNNIEST SHOW ON THE PLANET\' Daily Mail
The National Theatre\'s award-winning comedy One Man, Two Guvnors will be coming to the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford from 21 - 26 July 2014.
Now seen by over 1 million people worldwide, this internationally-acclaimed smash-hit will be making its premiere in Bradford on its longest ever UK & Ireland Tour.
Nicholas Hytner\'s five star production 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. Simple.
Chris Harper, the Producer of One Man, Two Guvnors said:
\'We are delighted to be bringing One Man, Two Guvnors to Bradford for the first time and hope that audiences in Yorkshire will find it as hilarious as they have in London, where it has just celebrated being the longest running show in the Theatre Royal Haymarket\'s 192-year history.\'
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. The physical comedy director is Cal McCrystal, with designs by Mark Thompson, lighting by Mark Henderson, sound design by Paul Arditti, fight direction by Kate Waters and choreography and associate direction by Adam Penford.
Casting for the tour is yet to be announced.
