A BIT ABOUT US

Synopsis:

Run for Your Wife centers around John Smith, who literally has two lives, complete with two different wives, Mary and Barbara. He manages to juggle them both without arousing suspicion, until he gets caught up in a mugging and wakes up in a hospital with the wrong wife by his side. A highly complicated set of hijinks, secret trysts, and door slamming comedy ensue as he is forced to deal with explaining things to both of his wives and the police.

“Run for Your Wife” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
