15th – 23rd July 2011

The sequel to Run For Your Wife, from the master of modern farce.

The sequel to Run For Your Wife finds our bigamist taxi-driver, John Smith, still keeping both his families (one in Wimbledon and one in Streatham) happily and blissfully unaware of each other. However, his teenage children — one girl and one boy, with different mothers — have met on the Internet and are determined to see each other in person. When it dawns on John that they are about to meet, and the possible consequences of such a meeting between lusty teenagers, he frantically works to keep them apart.
