Run for Your Wife
John Smith is a London taxi cab driver and the happiest man in the world. He loves his job, he loves his wife and he loves South London where they live and he also loves North London where he lives with his other wife. And his wives love him because he’s the sweetest, most lovable, most cheerful husband in the world.
Perfect! Until one day he does something heroic by saving an old bag lady from two young muggers. After he wakes up in a hospital, he ends up with Mary instead of with Barbara, with whom he should be at the moment, and he now has to deal with explaining this problem to both of his wives and the police all at once. Complication is piled upon complication as the cabby works tirelessly and hilariously to keep his suspicious wives from running into each other and to keep all of his stories together. Run For Your Wife is a fast paced, slapstick, laugh-a-minute romp that leaves you in stitches and begging for more.
