If you think your life is stressful, imagine the life of John Smith, a taxi driver who keeps two separate families in different parts of London. When his teenaged children (a girl from one family and a boy from the other) accidentally meet on the Internet and plan to see each other in person, John’s already complicated life becomes absolutely hectic. Can he manage to keep his double life a secret from the kids and his two wives? This fast moving comedy by Britain’s recognized “master of farce,” was nominated for the 2002 Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best New Comedy.  “… a sheer joy from beginning to end.” (Daily Telegraph)
