RUN FOR YOUR WIFE, Palms Theatre, October 9 - November 15, 2014

This superb example of the British farce had A London cab driver, John Smith, literally has two lives,
complete with two different wives, Mary and Barbara. Somehow, he manages to juggle them both
without arousing suspicion. However, he gets caught up in a mugging, and he wakes up in a hospital.
He ends up with Mary instead of with Barbara, with whom he should be at the moment, and he now
has to deal with explaining this problem to both of his wives and the police all at once.
