It’s set to be an Eastenders reunion at New Wimbledon Theatre this March as three of the show’s former stars are set to perform in award-winning comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.
Shaun Williamson, best known for his role as Barry in the soap, Emma Barton, who played Honey Mitchell and Jasmyn Banks, who took the role of Alice Branning, will all perform together later this spring.
Nicholas Hytner’s five star production tells the comical story of Francis Henshall who, fired from his skiffle band, 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 takes a job with one Stanley Stubbers, but to prevent discovery he must keep his two guvnors apart.
It’s been described as a glorious celebration of British comedy – a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners.
Now seen by more than one million people worldwide, this internationally-acclaimed smash-hit, has been hailed a comedy classic.
The show is based on Richard Bean’s version of Carlo Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy, The Servant of Two Masters and has songs by Grant Olding, performed by The Craze.
