One Man, Two Guvnors is to close in the West End in spring 2014.

The National Theatre production, which is currently showing at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, will end its run on March 1, 2014.

When it completes its run it will be the longest running show at the venue in almost 200 years and will have played around 900 London performances.

It will then embark on a tour throughout the UK and Ireland from May 2014.

One Man, Two Guvnors opened at the National Theatre in May 2011, starring James Corden as Francis Henshall. In November of that year it transferred to the Adelphi Theatre in London.

The show then continued its run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from March 2012. It currently stars Owain Arthur in the lead role.

There have also been two previous UK tours, as well as Broadway transfer to the Music Box Theater in 2012.

The production has recently completed its international tour, which included destinations such as Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand.
