Hi,
Many, many years ago, I watched a comedy play full of messes. There was a man who was cheating his wife with three mistress. There was many commotions and funny things happening when he was trying to hide one from another and his brilliant ideas how to get rid of suspicion of cheating from his wife.
Please help finding this play or try to suggest similar comedy plays.

Thank you very much

Sounds like a Ray Cooney play to me - or along those lines. Check out his play 'Run for Your Wife' as a good example of the kind of thing you might be looking for:

Good luck!

Thank you both for the help.
As I am not english speaking, I didn't know this is call farce for this type of comedy and I didn't get any result from searching...
