‘Run For Your Wife’ comes off at National Theatre this weekend


All roads lead to the National Theatre in Accra this weekend when Imagebureau, in partnership with April Communications Limited, presents the world’s best-written comedy, ‘Run For Your Wife’.

The hilarious play will be staged on Saturday and Sunday, October 1-2 at 4pm and 8pm each day. The much-anticipated play, according to the organisers, will be the best-staged play ever to be witnessed in Ghana.

The cast includes some of the finest talents in the business, including George Quaye playing the role of Adjei Sowah; Naa Ashorkor as Mrs. Mary Sowah and first wife of Mr. Adjei Sowah; Sitsofe Tsikor plays Naa Shome Sowah and Adjei’s second wife.

Others are Fiifi Coleman, Roland Adom, Francis Osei Bonsu, Andrew Adote Tandoh, and introducing for the first time in a stage play, respected Public Relations personality and Media Person, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo.

The play is produced by Imagebureau in partnership with April Communications Limited and the National Theatre as part of the 2022 Theatre Week Celebrations. ‘Run For Your Wife’ is an adaptation of a 1983 comedy by British playwright, Ray Cooney.

‘Run For Your Wife’ chronicles the life of Adjei Sowah, an Accra-based taxi driver with a very tricky secret. He is married to two women who live five minutes apart, yet do not know about each other’s existence.

This, he achieved by maintaining a rather tight schedule and a clever lifestyle. All is well until an accident interrupts his busy schedule, inviting the police and media – two organisations that do not understand privacy as far as he is concerned. How smart can an ordinary taxi driver be to prevent matters from getting out of hand when the two wives find out about each other?
