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.
