About this show

Run For Your Wife is a classic British farce that has had them rolling in the aisles in London and New York. The highly improbable plot focuses on London taxi driver, John Smith, played by Dennis Brown, who has two wives: Mary, played by Leah Rae, and Barbara, played by Tracy Adams. Determined to keep his lie intact, John lives in two separate homes. He rooms with Mary in the mornings and resides with Barbara in the evenings. Unfortunately, John's meticulous plan is disrupted when he intervenes in a mugging and gets bonked on the head. After being treated in a hospital, he is dropped off at Mary's place at a time when he should have been home with Barbara. John desperately struggles to hold his scheme together while avoiding arrest by the police and suspicion from his wives.
