Can a situation, where a man is trying hard to hide from his wife the fact that he has another wife, be comical? What if there is also a police officer believing and saying otherwise? This is what forms the plot of the comic play, Run For Your Wife, a production set to be staged in the city, which its performers say is the longest running play with three decades of staging history. It tells the story of a taxi driver Parminder Singh Bedi (aka Pammy) who is married to two women and neither is aware of the other.

But when he gets mugged one day, he gets trapped in a web of lies to hide his situation from his two wives. “It’s like a mountainous road, there are continuous twists and turns throughout the play. There is non-stop nonsense where there is continuous confusion while the protagonist and his friend try to control the situation but a new problem pops up everytime,” says Mrinal Dhar, director of the play.

With performances all over the world, it is now being adapted and abridged by Behroopiya Entertainers. The act will see a touch of Punjabi style and local Delhi language. Mudit Malik, who plays the lead protagonist in the play, says, “It’s a non-stop chase and the best part is that you are chasing your own tail.”
