Caught in the Net by Ray Cooney, directed by Meredith Connely.

Performances will run Fridays and Saturdays from Marh 6th through 21st at 8 PM. There will be one Sunday performance on March 15th at 3 PM.

The sequel to Ray Cooney's "Run for Your Wife" finds bigamist taxi driver John Smith still keeping his two families happy and blissfully unaware of each other in different parts of London. However, his teenage children -- a girl from one family and a boy from the other -- have met on the Internet and are anxious to meet in person since they have so much in common: surname and taxi-driving dad aged forty-three! Keeping them apart plunges John into a hell-hole of his own making. John's lodger, Stanley, could prove to be his savior, but he is about to go on holiday with his decrepit old father, who turns up thinking he is already at the guest house. The situation spirals out of control as John juggles outrageously with the truth.
