A CLASSIC comedy play, starring James Corden, which has been receiving rave reviews, will be screened live at The Dukes on September 15.

Tickets are selling fast for the latest National Theatre Live satellite screening at the Lancaster cinema.

One Man, Two Guvnors is Richard Bean’s English version of Carlo Goldoni’s classic comedy, The Servant of Two Masters.

Sex, food and money are high on the agenda, as Francis Henshall (Corden) becomes minder to a small-time East End hood.

Described as “a triumph of visual and verbal comedy”, this play sees James Corden return to the National for the first time since The History Boys.

NT Live is an exciting initiative that broadcasts live performances of National Theatre plays on to cinema screens worldwide.
