James Corden as Francis Henshall and Suzie Toase as Dolly in the National Theatre’s ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’.

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 fiancée'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 reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden, the uproarious One Man, Two Guvnors was a runaway hit both in London's West End and on Broadway.
