From 3 September 2012 Phil Cornwell and Rhona Croker will join the West End cast of the National Theatre’s five star award-winning One Man, Two Guvnors at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.  Currently booking to 12 January 2013, Cornwell will play Charlie and Croker, Pauline. They join Owain Arthur who plays lovable chancer Francis Henshall, Jodie Prenger who plays Dolly, Martin Barrass as Alfie, David Benson as Gareth, Nigel Betts as Harry, Derek Elroy as Lloyd, Daniel Ings as Alan, Ben Mansfield as Stanley Stubbersand Gemma Whelan as Rachel Crabbe.  Gavin Spokes will join ensemble members Robin Berry, Gillian Budd, Andrew Dennis, Laura Matthews and Richard Shanks.

Nicholas Hytner’s production of Richard Bean’s award-wining adaptation, based on Carlo Goldoni’sThe Servant of Two Masters, has songs by Grant Olding. One Man, Two Guvnors physical comedy director is Cal McCrystal, designs are by Mark Thompson, with lighting by Mark Henderson, sound design by Paul Arditti, fight direction by Kate Waters and choreography by Adam Penford.

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 take a job with one Stanley Stubbers. To prevent discovery Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.
