One Man, Two Guvnors

'The funniest show on the planet'
Daily Mail

The National Theatre’s award-winning comedy One Man, Two Guvnors, embarks on its biggest-ever tour of the UK and Ireland from May 2014. Now seen by over 1 million people worldwide, this internationally acclaimed smash-hit is a glorious celebration of British comedy - a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners.

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall 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.

Directed by Nick Hytner and written by Richard Bean. Based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, with songs by Grant Olding.

Gavin Spokes takes the central role of loveable chancer, Francis Henshall.  Shaun Williamson (best known for playing Barry from Eastenders) will play Charlie Clench.  Emma Barton (Honey in Eastenders)will play Dolly, Jasmyn Banks (Alice in Eastenders)is Pauline Clench, Alicia Davies is Rachel Crabbe, Michael Dylan is Alfie, Derek Elroy plays Lloyd Boateng, Edward Hancock is Alan Dangle and Patrick Warner plays Stanley Stubbers. 

Gavin Spokes is currently playing Parsons in the Almeida/Headlong production of 1984 which is just about to transfer to the West End.  Gavin’s previous NT work includes Francis in the West End production of One Man, Two Guvnors and Jamie Lloyd’s production of She Stoops to Conquer.  He played Hardy in Laurel and Hardy for the Watermill Theatre.

Shaun Williamson, who is probably best known for his role in Eastenders, has also made TV appearances in Extras and Life’s Too Short for Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, New Tricks, The Secret Policeman’s Ball, and Bremner, Bird and Fortune.  His stage work includes The Ladykillers for Fiery Angel.

Emma Barton is well known to TV viewers for her role as Honey Mitchell in Eastenders, a role she played for three years.  Other Television credits include You, Me and Them and Spooks.  Her theatre work includes Doctor in the House (UK tour), Lily in Annie at West Yorkshire Playhouse and Roxie Hart in Chicago (West End and UK tour).  She also played Peggy in The Secret Garden for the RSC.

Jasmyn Banks played Alice Branning in Eastenders.  Other TV credits include: Little Crackers, Sadie Jones and Life of Riley.  Her stage work includes Hecuba for Lazarus Theatre Company and Wind in the Willows for the RSC.
