Dont Dress For Dinner
A comedy by Marc Camoletti Wednesday 25th March to Saturday 28th March 2015
We trawled our archives and decided to air again this incredibly funny farce we first performed in November 1999. A two-act play by French playwright Marc Camoletti. The play ran in France and then in London, running there for six years, and then opened on Broadway in 2012.“Don't Dress for Dinner” is a madcap mix of mistaken identities, flimsy lingerie and a million laughs. It's a frenetic case of mistaken identity with more twists than a corkscrew. When Jacqueline decides to visit her mother for a few days, her husband Bernard sees an opportunity for a cozy weekend with his new mistress. His bachelor pal Robert calls to announce his return from Hong Kong, so Bernard invites him along as his alibi, also hiring a Cordon Bleu-level cook to cater a delicious dinner. But when Jacqueline realizes Robert is coming for a visit everything changes, and the high speed farce begins! One impossible situation leads to another as the hapless friend Robert finds himself the target of both amorous attention and wrathful vengeance, while Bernard tries desperately to salvage a scrap of illicit bliss from the wreckage of a weekend. Carol Jewel directed as well as performed in this play.
