Richard Bean adapted the 1743 Italian comedy Servant of Two Masters into a new stage play called One Man, Two Guvnors, which relocates the story to Brighton in 1963. The production premiered in June 2011 at the National Theatre in London, followed by a brief UK tour and then a transfer to the West End. Critics have widely hailed it as one of the funniest new shows in a long time; the Broadway production, which opened in 2012, was nominated for seven Tony Awards, and lead actor James Corden took home the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play.

Francis Henshall is an easily confused man who agrees to work for a gangster and a criminal on the lam at the same time. Although the two "guvnors" are connected in myriad ways, Francis can never remember them, so he does everything he can to keep the two from meeting. The fiasco includes flying fish heads, cross-dressing, an on-stage band and more; see the hilarious comedy with One Man, Two Guvnors tickets.
