A Farce by Ray Cooney


January 11-13, 18-20, and 25-27, 2008
Produced in Cooperation with Samuel French, Inc.


The play finds a bigamist taxi driver, John Smith, keeping his two families in different parts of London (one in Wimbledon and one in Streatham), both happy and blissfully unaware of each other. However, his teenage children, a girl from one wife and a boy from the other, have met on the Internet and are anxious to meet each other in person since they have so much in common, same surname and taxi-driving dad of the same age, etc. Keeping them apart creates quite a challenge for John. His lodger, Stanley, could be a life-saver in keeping the two apart, 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 busts a gut trying to keep the truth about his double life from being discovered.
