‘Run For Your Wife’ comedy opens at Riverfront Theater Sept. 13

September 11, 2019

“Run For Your Wife,” Second Street Players’ fall comedy, will open at 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 13, at Riverfront Theater, 2 S. Walnut St. in downtown Milford.

Performances continue Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 14 and 15, and Friday to Sunday, Sept. 20 to 22. Curtain is at 7 p.m. for Friday and Saturday shows, and 2 p.m. for Sunday shows.

This fast-paced show tells the story of London cab driver John Smith, with two wives, two lives and a very precise schedule for juggling them both. Trouble brews when Smith is mugged and ends up in the hospital, where both of his addresses surface, causing both towns’ police to investigate. Having upset his schedule, Smith becomes hopelessly entangled in his attempts to explain himself to his wives and two suspicious police officers.

“Run For Your Wife” is directed by Steve Twilley. “Audiences are in for some side-splitting, laugh-filled entertainment,” Twilley said. “This cast is so talented and has been working so hard. Watching them bring these characters to life as they run from house to house, tell lie after lie, and confuse wives, neighbors and the police has kept us all laughing during rehearsals. We can't wait to share this with audiences.”

Tickets are $17. For Sunday matinees, there is a $1 discount for seniors, students and military. To purchase tickets for reserved seats, go to or call 800-838-3006.

Events in downtown Milford during both Saturday shows, Sept. 14 and 21, will affect parking in the lot adjacent to the theater. Saturday night ticket holders are advised to plan ahead and arrive early. Seating begins 30 minutes before curtain time.
