Now, in addition to still having two wives, the British taxi driver also has two children, a son and a daughter who, by way of the internet, find out they have a lot in common; more specifically, their dad.
“Even though it’s a sequel, the introduction of ‘You’ve gotten away with this for 16 years’ brings the audience right up to date and into this comedy farce taking place in London,” said previous stage manager and current director Margot McCann.
Originally McCann was going to co-direct with Renn until he suddenly passed away in August. McCann said, “Unfortunately we didn’t get to talk about it beforehand. I was hoping he’d done an outline or something but I’m flying solo this time doing the best I can with what I think we would’ve decided on.”
One of the more unique decisions McCann has conjured is the set. “We are simultaneously using the same set to depict two houses in two different parts of London,” said McCann. There is enough change in each house for the audience to quickly catch on.
Not entirely going it solo, McCann’s assistant director is Martin Smith who is also in the play, putting a little more pressure on everyone.
“It’s a great cast and a funny show. There are some really good lines and our ensemble has good comedy rhythm and timing which is so important in farce productions,” saids McCann.
“Caught in the Net” is the classic British comedy farce with a modern day twist sure to delight any audience and, of course, Dick Renn.
