A sequel to the smash hit Run For Your Wife is set to make audiences at Limelight Theatre cry with laughter all over again. Written by master-of-farce Ray Cooney and directed by 50-year theatre veteran Susan Vincent, Caught in the Net is set 18 years later with taxi driver John Smith still a bigamist. He keeps his two families in different parts of London, both happy and blissfully unaware of each other.
But his teenage children – a girl from one family and a boy from the other – have met on the internet and are keen to meet, given they have so much in common including their fathers having the same name, age and occupation. When John realises his children are about to encounter each other, he frantically tries to keep them apart aided and abetted by his lodger Stanley. Mayhem ensues as the situation spirals out of control and John juggles the truth more and more outrageously.
