Three divorced couples are locked together in a room in Paris. Let the games begin.

Invited to a fancy dinner in a French bistro by a mysterious person might be the little bit of excitement everyone needs in their lives. Until they meet the other guests, and realize they’re about to be locked in a room with their ex, along with two other couples-no-more. Still heaven? Or the beginnings of a long trek into hell? Whichever way, it’s funny!

Neil Simon’s “The Dinner Party” is the second show in Bob and Ro Productions second season with some old and new faces playing the hapless couples, including Colin Coate and Philip Pittman (Cahoots), Karene Vocque (The Problem) and Christina Clem (Mary, Mary and The Mousetrap), as well as newcomers Christopher Smith and Janice Barrilleaux.

Bob and Ro Productions presents “The Dinner Party” on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., Oct. 21 through Nov. 20.
