Don’t Dress For Dinner

Regrettably, we have decided to postpone this production until after the present Covid-19 coronavirus situation in order to safeguard both our members and our audiences. We hope to be able to stage it next season, possibly in November, but of course this will depend upon what happens with the virus outbreak.

People who have already purchased tickets and those with season tickets are being contacted in order to arrange refunds.

Don’t Dress For Dinner

A Farce By Marc Camoletti
Adapted By Robin Hawdon

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi. It’s foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? Well…. suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.
