ACTOR, STAND-UP comedian and presenter Rufus Hound will lead the cast in Nicholas Hytner’s five star award-winning production of One Man, Two Guvnors for its second UK tour in autumn 2012.
Rufus will play the lead role of Francis Henshall when it rolls into Glasgow’s Theatre Royal from Tuesday 13 to Saturday, November 17.
Your Herald has teamed up with the organisers of the show to give away a pair of ticekts to one lucky reader for the Wednesday night show at 7.30pm.
Rufus Hound is best known as a comedian and TV and radio personality, where his work includes seven series of the award-winning Celebrity Juice, the BBC sitcom Hounded, 8 out of 10 Cats, The Xtra Factor, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and the forthcoming primetime comedy show Mad Mad World (ITV1).
In Richard Bean’s award-winning version of Carlo Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy, The Servant of Two Masters, sex, food and money are high on the agenda.
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 fiancee’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 re-united with Rachel.
