Dunfield Theatre Cambridge to Present RUN FOR YOUR WIFE, 4/16-5/4
The Dunfield Theatre Cambridge is getting ready to shift from music of the British invasion to outrageous British humour. Run For Your Wife is a classic farce that will take audiences on a laugh-a-minute ride from April 16th to May 4th.
"This show is full of clever one-liners, outrageous characters, and over-the-top situations that will leave audiences in stitches," says Alex Mustakas, Artistic Director of Drayton Entertainment.
The hilarity starts when cab driver John Smith's two lives begin to unravel. For years his crazy work schedule allowed him to successfully keep two marriages secret, spending mornings with one spouse and evenings with the other. But when he is injured in a mugging, the cabbie's carefully crafted charade implodes when the police return him to the wrong home at the wrong time. The result is an uproarious romp full of mistaken identities, swinging doors, and lunacy.
Taking the driver's seat as Director is Marcia Kash, who boasts an impressive track record mounting farces at various Drayton Entertainment theatres throughout the province.
The cast includes David Leyshon as John Smith, the quick-witted taxi driver leading a double life. Leyshon is a seasoned performer, having performed in productions at the Stratford Festival, Mirvish Productions, and Shaw Festival.
Susie Burnett and Stacy Smith are the unassuming wives, Mary and Barbara.
Michael Lamport, who was a cast member of the Toronto premiere production Run For Your Wife, takes on the wisecracking neighbour, Stanley Gardner.
David Talbot is the earnest Detective Sergeant Troughton. Anthony Bekenn is the hopelessly confused Detective Sergeant Porterhouse, and Aiden Desalaiz pulls double duty as the flamboyant neighbour, Bobby Franklin, and a curious newspaper reporter.
