The screening will take place at the Sky Room at MK Theatre at 7pm on September 26th, and will see the screening return to cinemas as a commemoration for the 10th birthday of the National Theatre Live.

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden, the play follows Francis Henshall, who is fired by his skiffle band and becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad.

But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel.

To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.

Richard Bean’s work is based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, with songs by Grant Olding.
