Farce

The sequel to Run for Your Wife finds the bigamist taxi driver John Smith still keeping his two families in different parts of London, both happy and blissfully unaware of each other. However, his teenage children, a girl from one family and a boy from the other, have met on the Internet and are anxious to meet in person since they have so much in common name, surname and taxi driving dad! Keeping them apart plunges John into a hell hole of his own making. His lodger Stanley could be a savior, but he is about to go on holiday with his decrepit old father who turns up thinking he is already at the guest house. The situation spirals out of control as John juggles outrageously with the truth.

I loved it, and like other cooney plays, it starts off strong, builds a crazy rythm that it keeps up until the end.

Once again Cooney has succeeded in writing another fast paced and hilarious farse.
From the opening dialogue the play sets the scene for the brilliance to follow.
The characters are awarded with quality comedic dialogue and situation comedy.
A fantastic sequel to Run For Your Wife.
I hope to see it performed in the future.
