Ballycumber Drama Group present ‘Run for your Wife’ by Ray Cooney

So the cast is chosen and the stage is set for this year’s production, the hilarious farce “Run for your Wife” by Ray Cooney, which promises to be one of the funniest and most ambitious productions yet. “Run for your Wife” will be directed by Brendan Hanamy and will star Chris Murphy, Derek Claffey, Aideen Coughlan, Frances Doyle, Carol Robbins, Brendan Robbins, Michael
Hiney & Brendan Scully

It is the story of London cab driver John Smith, with two wives, two lives and a very precise schedule for juggling them both. With one wife at home in Streatham and another at home in Wimbledon, and with occupants of the flat upstairs at the latter location. Trouble brews when Smith is mugged and ends up in hospital, where both of his addresses surface, causing both the

Streatham and Wimbledon police to investigate. Having upset his schedule, Smith becomes hopelessly entangled in his attempts with his lazy layabout neighbour upstairs in Wimbledon, to explain himself to his wives and two suspicious police officers.

The play will take place over two weekends on Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th January in Ballycumber Hall at 8pm and in Tuar Ard, Moate on Thursday 3rd, Friday 4th & Saturday 5th February at 8:30pm. Tickets will be available in Ballycumber on the night and can be reseserved at Tuar Ard on 090 6482042. Tickets are €10 and €8 for students and OAP’s.
