Hilarious, laugh your socks off fun, laughter and mirth greet you for one of the funniest nights out of the year at the 'Royal', writes Paul Thomas.

Ray Cooney's Caught in the Net, brought the house down at Windsor's Theatre Royal for a short run, so get in quick if you want some laughter in your life.

Caught in the Net is the sequel to Cooney’s masterpiece of a farce Run for Your Wife.

This time we find bigamist taxi-driver, John Smith, still keeping both his families – one in Wimbledon and one in Streatham – happy and blissfully unaware of each other However, his teenage children – one girl and one boy by each wife – have met on the internet and are determined to see each other in person, especially as it transpires that they have so much in common – same surname, taxi-driver dad of the same age, etc.

When it dawns on John that they are about to meet, he plunges into a hell-hole of his own making in order to keep them apart.

His saviour could be Stanley, his lodger.

Stanley is about to go on holiday with his decrepit old father, who turns up thinking he is already at the guest house.

The ever-spiralling situation gets increasingly out-of-hand as John busts a gut to juggle with the truth.

This will have you falling over yourself with belly laughs alongside the rest of the audience.

The whole cast is just magnificent as the situation gets out of control while John tries to satisfy both his worlds while stopping his siblings coupling up.

John Goodrum as the hapless John Smith is brilliant, but George Telfer steals the show as Stanley Gardner, the much put-upon friend who is uncle to all and ties the the cast up in knows.

This really is a tour de force of farce and a great night out for enjoying yourself.

Fast-moving, full of fun and fall of your seat one liners all contribute to this fabulous tale of intrigue and web weaving.

Ditch the tellybox and laugh your socks off down at the 'Royal'. But get in quick because it's only on till tomorrow (Saturday).

Caught in the Net, Theatre Royal Windsor, until Saturday, April 28. Box office: 01753 853888 or theatreroyalwindsor.co.uk
