Archives - Run for your Wife
by Ray Cooney
Directed by Eric Chorley
Saturday 1st – Saturday 8th January 1994 in the Auditorium
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 timetable he has been a successful, if tired, bigamist for three years. However, intervening in a mugging he suffers mild concussion and in the resulting confusion he has to cope with a succession of well-meaning but prying policemen, the press, two increasingly irate wives and a very gay neighbour.
This much-acclaimed farce was a smash hit in London for the Theatre of Comedy company and starred Richard Briers, Bernard Cribbins and Bill Pertwee.
Part of the Barn’s 1993/1994 season
Presented by The Barn Theatre Club
