Broadway West Theatre Company in Fremont presents the hilarious British farce, "Run for Your Wife" by Ray Cooney, directed by John Baldwin, July 20 - August 18.
John, a taxi driver, is married to two wives who live in different parts of London. Things go well until he rescues an elderly woman from three muggers and winds up in the hospital. The ensuing treatment throws his carefully constructed life off kilter. John's dilemma is not helped when an upstairs neighbor tries to help and only makes things worse. Add two police detectives, one sexually charged wife, one play-by-the-rules wife and a gay dressmaker and you have the elements of chaos and continuous laughter.
Performance times are 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. There are three Sunday matinees: July 29 and August 5 matinee performances begin with a continental brunch (included in price of ticket) at 12:15 p.m. and the show begins at 1 p.m. The August 12 performance starts at 1 p.m. with refreshments during intermission (included in price of ticket).
Regular ticket prices are $23 general and $18 for students, seniors, and TBA members. Thursday, July 26, August 9 and 16 performances are $15 for everyone, with a bargain Thursday held on August 2 - all tickets $10. Brunch Sunday performances and Opening night are $23 for everyone. All ticket prices include refreshments.
