Quotes & Highlights

Playwright Ray Cooney is often referred to as the “master of the farce.” Run for Your Wife is the longest-running comedy on London’s West End, having played there for nine years.


Written by Ray Cooney

Directed by Gigi Fusco Meese

In the polygamist tradition of the hit television show Big Love, the comedy Run For Your Wife is a hilarious take on multi-marital escapades. John Smith is an aptly named very ordinary man with a very extraordinary love life. Without so much as a Blackberry to aid him, John has managed to keep dual marriages going. Until now.
