‘Run for Your Wife’ announced as mid-season replacement, auditions set for July 7 & 8

             Second Street Players will present “Run for Your Wife” as the fourth show of its 2019 season.  This fast-paced, hilarious show replaces “The Odd Couple,” which was recently announced as a mid-season replacement.

               “Run for Your Wife” tells the story of unassuming cab driver John Smith, who has two different wives and two different homes in two different towns – and a very precise schedule for juggling it all. Things begin to unravel when Smith gets a bump on the head and lands in the hospital, where both of his addresses surface and police from both towns begin to investigate. Having upset his schedule, Smith becomes hopelessly and hilariously entangled in his attempts – aided by his hapless upstairs neighbor – to explain himself to his wives and two suspicious police detectives. Lie is piled upon lie in a mixture of slapstick, misdirection, and fall-out-of-your-seat laughs.

               Auditions for “Run for Your Wife” will be held at the theater – located at 2 South Walnut Street in Milford – on Sunday, July 7 and Monday, July 8 at 7:00 p.m. both nights.  This is a highly physical comedy farce and all of the roles are very physical. Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script. Be prepared to do your best British dialect. Anyone needing more information or those interested but unable to attend a scheduled audition, should contact the show’s Director, Steve Twilley, at 302-245-3660. Show dates for “Run for Your Wife” are September 13, 14, & 15 and 20, 21 & 22, 2019.
