                                RAY COONEY’S

            Run for your Wife
                              directed by John Farrell

This much acclaimed comedy was a smash hit and an in London for eight years!
John Smith is a London cabbie with his own taxi, a wife in Stratham, a wife in Wimbledon
and a knife-edge schedule. By strict adherence to this schedule, he has been a successful, if
tired, bigamist for three years. One day gallantly intervening in a mugging he is taken to
hospital with mild concussion. In the ensuing complications, aided by unwilling neighbour
Stanley, John tries to cope with a succession of well meaning but prying policemen, the
press, two increasingly irate wives and a gay neighbour. Great fun.

 Songs my Lover forgot to sing to me
Godfrey Johnson entertains with music from Coward to Brel to his own compositions. “In
90 minutes one is transported to so many places with this vast repertoire, and one is also
blown away by his adaptability, going from the most tender of love songs to the hardest,
even bawdy clucks on the piano when he does some of the lighter, often comedic stuff.”
(Rafiek Mammon, Tonight)

“Julio Acevedo must have carried the proud name of ‘The Entertainer’ in his native Chile
because the man lives up to every promise of that bold ideal strutting, singing, swaying and
sashaying about the ... stage. His show ..., a lunchbox-sized bells-and-whistles
extravaganza, encapsulates almost everything one wishes from an evening out.” Peter
Tromp, Cape Times
“Vitality and glamour are the salient features of Corazon Latino, which pulsates with the
full-blooded warmth from a Latin-accented performance. Beverly Brommert
