In a converted farmhouse, Bernard (Simon Hunt) is hoping to entertain his chic, Parisian mistress, Suzy (Summer Hairabedian), for the weekend. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook (Melissa Elhardt) to furnish the gourmet delights, is in the process of packing his wife, Jacqueline (Angela Thompson), off to her mother, and has even invited along his best friend Robert (John Chitambar), as a suitable alibi. It’s foolproof, what could possibly go wrong?

Nothing much, just … crossed signals, mistaken identities, jealous husbands and more affairs than expected! Mix all these ingredients and you have the perfect recipe for an evening of hilarious confusion as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed!

Marc Camoletti’s comedy “Don’t Dress for Dinner” was a smash-hit in Paris (under the original title Pyjamas pour Six), where it ran for over two years. Robin Hawdon’s adaptation of this French original was premiered in 1991 and played to critical acclaim at London’s Apollo Theatre.
