"Don't Dress For Dinner"
This boulevard comedy was a smash hit in Paris, where it played for over two years, and in London, where it ran for six years at the Appollo and Duchess Theatres. It has since played in theatres all over the USA and the English speaking world and was revived in Chicago and on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre in 2012. This production was nominated for two Tony Awards.
Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisan mistress, Suzanne, in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook, Suzette, to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along to provide the alibi. It's foolproof: what could possibly go wrong?
Well... suppose Robert turns up not realising 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 that he mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone's alibis get confused with everyone else's.
An evening of hilarious confusion ensures as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.
