‘Caught in the Net’ reading – Monday 23rd January

Our next reading will be Ray Cooney’s hilarious farce

John Smith is a London cab driver with a secret. He has two wives, one in Wimbledon and one in Streatham. Gavin Smith, son of John and Barbara Smith, ends up meeting Vicki Smith, daughter of John and Mary Smith, online. They fall in love, and they discover that their fathers have the same name and occupation. They decide that they have to meet, and their dad, John finds out. He enlists the aid of his pal, the not-so-bright Stanley Gardner, who brings along his father. The result is confusion, lying, and all sorts of craziness.
