Event Description

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society announces the eighth play in the exciting series of National Theatre Live screenings. National Theatre Live is a groundbreaking project that presents the best of British theater live from the London stage on film to cinemas across the UK and around the world. Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the “The Late Late Show,” James Corden, the uproarious “One Man, Two Guvnors” was a runaway hit both in London’s West End and on Broadway. In the British seaside town of Brighton, Francis Henshall has just been fired from his skiffle band. Despondent and desperate for fish and chips, Henshall ends up in the employ of Roscoe Crabbe, a small-time hood from the East End of London. But it turns out that “Roscoe” is really his twin sister Rachel in disguise, because Roscoe was murdered by Rachel’s boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. As fate would have it, Stanley is also hiding out in Brighton waiting to be reunited with Rachel, and employs Henshall, as well. In order to keep both his jobs Henshall, who is also working on a romance of his own, must keep his two guvnors (slang for boss) from discovering each other. The play presents slapstick at its finest, with actors falling down stairs, slamming doors, making double entendre and even interacting with the audience in two extended passages of improvisation. It is a tour-de-comic force for Corden, who brings a winningly warm and harassed humanity to the role. You won’t see a car karaoke number in this performance, but you can be sure that James Corden will make you laugh so much that your sides will hurt. The “Daily Mail” says, “The funniest show on the planet” and “The Times” states that the play is a “wildly funny comedy.” Charles Spencer from “The Daily Telegraph” writes that Cordon “constantly button-holes the audience with asides and ad libs, and turns the play’s great set piece in which he simultaneously serves dinner to his two masters into one of the most uproarious scenes of farcical comedy I have ever witnessed.” (Runtime: 3 hr., 10 min., including an intermission). Screenings will be on Monday, October 24th at 1:00 pm, Wednesday, October 26th at 7:00 pm and Saturday, October 29th at 1:00 pm at the Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive in Dartmouth Plaza (behind the Lewes Wawa). Admission for National Theatre Live is $18 for RBFS members and $20 general admission. Online reservations (www.rehobothfilm.com) are encouraged and may be made with MasterCard or VISA.
