Run For Your Wife at The Mill at Sonning


  • The Mill at Sonning (map)

A serving of delicious farce is once again on the menu at The Mill!

If you enjoyed Move Over, Mrs Markham last year you will be delighted to welcome back the King of Farce, Ray Cooney. Ray will once again direct his own play - Run For Your Wife - his funniest and most acclaimed ever!

John Smith is a happy London taxi driver, working shifts. But he has one little problem. He is married. Twice! He has one wife, Mary, in Wimbledon. And another wife, Barbara, in Streatham. John keeps to a rigorous schedule so that never the twain shall meet. Everyone is blissfully happy - especially John Smith!

One day, gallantly intervening in a mugging, he is taken to hospital with concussion. The police become involved. John panics and enlists the help of neigbour Stanley. Bad choice! Stanley is shambolic, disorganised and when it comes to conniving - clueless! The hapless duo embark on a series of wildly implausible explanations. The more they lie, the deeper the hole they dig, and the more the situation all starts to go horribly but riotously wrong.

This is classic Cooney at his absolute best. Run For Your Wife has delighted audiences with smash-hit runs all over the world. So come along to laugh and laugh until you cry.


All tickets include a delicious two-course meal in the restaurant before the show.
