(Augusta, MI) Get ready for side-splitting hilarity as The Barn Theatre School for Advanced Theatre Training presents the superb British farce RUN FOR YOUR WIFE playing now through July 29!
RUN FOR YOUR WIFE is an outrageous comedy about a taxi driver (played by Jonnie Carpathios) who gets away with having two wives (Samantha Rickard and Melissa Cotton Hunter) in different areas of town because of his irregular work schedule. Complication is piled upon complication as he tries to keep his double life from exploding. This cabbie’s predicament will have the audience rolling in the aisles as he runs back and forth from wife to wife in this fantastic example of classic farce. Rounding out the cast are Barn favorites Patrick Hunter, John Jay Espino, Steven Lee Burright, Jamey Grisham, and first year apprentice Justin Matthews. Hailed by the New York Post as “virtually continuous laughter,” this production is sure to tickle your funny bone!
RUN FOR YOUR WIFE premiered in London in March of 1983 and enjoyed a highly successful nine-year run. London’s longest-running comedy to date, there have been several productions mounted internationally as well as a feature film adaption co-directed by author Ray Cooney. RUN FOR YOUR WIFE is Rated PG-13 due to sexuality and themes.
