One Man, Two Guvnors starts UK tour in Leicester
A UK tour of the National Theatre’s hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors starts at Leicester’s Curve this week.
Leicester audiences will be the first to see actor, stand-up comedian and presenter Rufus Hound take the lead role of Francis Henshall.
Richard Bean’s version of Carlo Goldoni’s Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters won the Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle awards for best new play.
The show looks set to be a sell-out at Curve, with only a handful of tickets available throughout the run.
One Man, Two Guvnors is a celebration of British comedy: a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners.
Rufus Hound’s television work includes Celebrity Juice, 8 out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and the shortly to be televised comedy show Mad Mad World.
He is currently making his professional stage debut in Utopia at The Soho Theatre.
Nicholas Hytner, artistic director of the National Theatre, directs One Man, Two Guvnors which runs at Curve from Thursday (25 October) until Saturday, 3 November.
