Casting Announced For The RUN FOR YOUR WIFE
Casting is announced for a new production of the classic 1980s British farce 'Run for your Wife', directed by its author, Ray Cooney, at The Mill at Sonning.
'Run for your Wife' will run from 3 October - 23 November, 2019.
John Smith is a happy London taxi driver, working shifts. But he has one little problem. He is married. Twice! He has one wife, Mary, in Wimbledon. And another wife, Barbara, in Streatham. John keeps to a rigorous schedule so that never the twain shall meet. Everyone is blissfully happy - especially John Smith! One day, gallantly intervening in a mugging, he is taken to hospital with concussion.
The police become involved. John panics and enlists the help of neighbour Stanley. Bad choice! Stanley is shambolic, disorganised and when it comes to conniving - clueless! The hapless duo embark on a series of wildly implausible explanations. The more they lie, the deeper the hole they dig, and the more the situation all starts to go horribly but riotously wrong.
Nick Wilton (John Smith) has appeared in 11 productions at The Mill at Sonning going back to 2005 and 'Caught in the Net' - also written and directed by Ray Cooney. He last appeared at The Mill in Ray Cooney's 'It Runs in the Family'.
Jeffrey Holland (Stanley) is best known from his TV appearances as comic Spike Dixon in 9 series of 'Hi-De-Hi', as the stuffy footman James Twelvetrees in 4 series of the hugely successful 'You Rang M'Lord?' and as Mr Parkin the stationmaster in 'Oh, Dr. Beeching!'.
