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, Bernard thinks he’s planned the perfect romantic weekend for his glamorous French mistress, Suzanne.
 
But when Bernard’s wife, Jacqueline, hears the news that her secret lover Robert – ooh, la, la – is visiting for the weekend, she decides to stick around for a surprise tryst of her own.
 
An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard improvises at breakneck speed! Suzanne becomes the cook, Suzette becomes the lover, the wife becomes increasingly suspicious and the friend is completely bewildered.
 
Written by Marc Camoletti, Don’t Dress For Dinner has all the earmarks of the classic French farce: marital infidelity, misunderstandings and mistaken identities. You don’t want to miss it!

Reviews

“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”
