A British Farce
This superb example of the British farce had audiences rolling in the aisles in London and New York! John Smith is a London cab driver who has worked out a meticulous method for maintaining two separate households and two wives. His first wife, Mary lives but four or so minutes away from the second household where John’s second wife, Barbara resides. John has a little book where he has carefully codified every day to coordinate his work schedule with his double life. As his perfect lie unravels, after he is banged on the head with a handbag while interceding in a mugging, the world goes topsy-turvy and the fun takes over like a runaway roller coaster. His upstairs neighbor Stanley becomes as involved as John, in the manic attempt to cover up the mess, ends up stoking the deceit and misunderstandings to the point of absurdity – at least in the audience’s point of view!
