This hilarious sequel to Run For Your Wife finds bigamist taxi-driver, John Smith, still keeping both his families happy and blissfully unaware of each other. But disaster threatens when his two teenage children – a girl by one wife and a boy by the other wife – meet on the Internet. Intrigued that they have so much in common -surname, taxi-driver dad of the same age etc, they are determined to meet, and when John realises his goose is about to be cooked, he plunges into a hell-hole of his own making in order to keep them apart. His saviour could be Stanley, his somewhat dim-witted lodger. But Stanley is about to go on holiday with his decrepit old father, who turns up thinking he is already at the guest house … 

The ever-spiralling situation gets increasingly out-of-hand as John desperately struggles to juggle with the truth.

Here’s what the papers said at the time:
“… fanciful and brilliant, this is the funniest play of the year…”
“Cooney gives you a masterclass in the art of farce…the perfectly potty plot is a precision-built laughter machine.”
“… a sheer joy from beginning to end.”

So if you if you fancy an evening of amusement and laughter, come and see Caught in the Net!
