Run For Your Wife


Written by Ray Cooney

Directed by John Sivewright

5 - 10 September 2016 at 7.45pm

John Smith is a London cabbie with his own taxi, a wife in Streatham, a wife in Wimbledon and a knife edge schedule! By strict adherence to this schedule he has been a successful, if tired, bigamist for three years, but one day, gallantly intervening in a mugging, he is taken to hospital with a mild concussion. The subsequent diversion from his schedule causes both of his alarmed wives to contact the police and report him missing. Upon his return home his attempts to pacify both spouses, assisted by his bemused lodger, Stanley, ensures that confusion and hilarity ensue in equal measure!

This riotous comedy is widely regarded as the finest work from 'The Master of Farce', Ray Cooney.
