March 19, 2011 Run For Your Wife, play by Ray Cooney. London cab driver John Smith has two wives, two lives and a very precise schedule for juggling them both. With one wife at home in Streatham and another at home in Wimbledon, and occupants in the upstairs flat at the latter location, trouble brews when Smith is mugged and ends up in hospital. Both of his addresses surface, causing both the Streatham and Wimbledon police to investigate. Forced to explain himself to his wives and two suspicious police officers, things get even more intriguing. Performed by the Huntington Beach Play House, in its 49th year of performances.
