With his wife out of town, an alibi from his best friend Robert, and Suzette, a Cordon Bleu cook, lined up to prepare gourmet delights, debonair Bernard thinks he’s planned the perfect romantic weekend for his glamorous French mistress, Suzanne.
But when Bernard’s wife, Jacqueline, hears that Robert - ooh, la, la - is visiting for the weekend, she decides to stick around for a surprise tryst of her own. Setting the stage for a side-splitting collision course of mistaken identities.
Suzanne becomes the cook, Suzette becomes the lover, the friend is bewildered, the wife is suspicious and an evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.
Following Marc Camoletti’s smash-hit show Boeing Boeing, Don’t Dress for Dinner has all the earmarks of the classic French farce: marital infidelity, misunderstandings and mistaken identities among the upper-class. A must for a fun evening out.
“Hurtling along at the speed of light, this breathtaking farce is a near faultless piece of theatrical invention. Within seconds we are drawn into a delicious web of marital treachery which accelerates with classic symmetry to an all-star denouement”The Guardian
