Don't Dress for Dinner

by Marc Camoletti  Adapted by Robin Hawdon
Directed by Thomas Badowski
Produced by Bryan Wockley

The Plot

Bernard is planning a weekend with his mistress at his chic converted barn in the French countryside just outside Paris. He has hired a gourmet cook, is packing his wife, Jacqueline off to her mother's, and has invited his best friend, Robert to provide the alibi. It is foolproof.

What could possibly go wrong? Suppose Robert doesn't know why he has been invited? Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers? What happens if the cook is mistaken for the mistress and the mistress can't cook? Mix these ingredients and you have the recipe for an evening of hilarious confusion.
