David Benson joins Nicholas Hytner's Royal National Theatre Production of One Man, Two Guvnors
I am thrilled to announce that I have been cast in this major new production of Richard Bean's adaptation of Goldoni's Servant of Two Masters. To be directed by Nicholas Hytner with Cal McCrystal, my director on Loot (Derby Playhouse 2003) and Jack and The Beanstalk (Newbury Corn Exchange 2004), the shows stars telly golden-boy James Corden. I have a small role in one scene (which suits me fine) playing a waiter called Gareth. I will also be understudying one of the main roles, Charlie.
