"Run for Your Wife" is a show about John Smith, a simple taxicab driver in London, who is as unassuming as his name, has a secret. His wife Barbara, a tall redhead, doesn't know about his wife Mary, a short blond and visa-versa. His irregular work schedule has allowed him to maintain this double life with relative ease ... until he has a little accident with his taxi. This accident sets in motion a series of events that slowly unravel John's carefully constructed life. With the help of his best friend, Stanley, who's not so bright, John tries unsuccessfully to keep his wives from finding out the truth. Add to the mix two detectives, a newspaper man and Bobby, a flamboyant, male dress designer who lives in one of the same apartment buildings as John, you have a recipe for knee slapping fun. The fabulous mix of characters in this play will take you on a hilarious ride that will keep you laughing long after you leave the theatre. You may actually need to see "Run For Your Wife" more than once, in case you were laughing too hard to catch all the fun the first time around. This show is rated PG-13.
