Don't Dress for Dinner
by Marc Camoletti (adapted by Robin Hawdon)

Produced & Directed by Andrew Stubbs & Pete Williamson.

Production dates : 9-12th September 2009

In a stylishly converted French farmhouse, Bernard is hoping to entertain his chic, Parisian mistriss, Suzy, for the weekend. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to furnish the gourmet delights, is in the process of packing his wife, Jacqueline, off to her mother, and has even invited along his best friend Robert as a suitable alibi. It's foolproof, what could possibly go wrong....?

Well, supposing Robert turns up without knowing why he's been invited? Say, Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers? Or how about the cook being mistaken for the mistress who can't cook? Mix all these ingredients and you have the perfect recipe for an evening of hilarious confusion as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed!
