After having a wonderful time at the Huron County Playhouse II in June, I was really looking forward to my visit this month in July. This time I would be seeing a British Farce by Ray Cooney called “Run for Your Wife”. David Leyshon stars as a taxi driver named John Smith who has been successfully keeping two marriages a secret until he has an accident at work and bumps his head. This throws off his entire schedule that has been keeping things running smoothly, and now he has to try to pick up the pieces to keep each of the wives from finding out about each other. The set was brilliantly crafted by David Antscherl who has separated a large room by colour so that the actors could either use both sides at once to simulate both wives at the same time, or use the whole set at once as one of the homes. Once the wives Mary and Barbara played by Susie Bernett and Stacy Smith realize that John is not home on time from work (because he keeps a precise schedule), they fret and worry. Complications ensue when police Sergeants played by David Talbot and Anthony Bekenn become involved even when neighbours played by Michael Lamport and Aidan deSalaiz try to help out. Find out if John Smith can keep his double life a secret by booking your tickets today!
Run for your Wife runs at the Huron Country Playhouse until August 2nd.
