Run for your wife!

I had the pleasure to go see a production from Theatre Alive here in Windsor. They put on a great show called "Run For Your Wife" by Ray Cooney and directed by Sarah Fitzgerald, which William got us tickets to see.

Overall, it was very witty with quite an entertaining and lively cast. Sometimes the British accents were a little mismatched, but not a big deal at all since each character really took on their role with charm and enthusiasm. The atmosphere was cozy and intimate too. You could clearly see the stage and all the little details, like the facial expressions of a character that you may miss in a larger setting.

There was also a small concession area to purchase food/drinks during intermission.

If you haven’t had a chance to get out and see a performance there, I definitely recommend going!

Taken from Theatre Alive:

"This superb example of the British farce had them rolling in the aisles in London and New York. John Smith is your ordinary London cab driver. He owns his own car, sets his own hours, is hard working, punctual and lives a very ordinary life...with the exception of his two wives, Mary and Barbara. Complication is piled upon complication as the cabby tries to keep his double life from exploding. Run for Your Wife is a fast paced, slapstick, laugh a minute romp that leaves you in stitches and begging for more."

To conclude this blog, I am really pleased to announce that my personal website has over 1000 hits now!
