A play by Marc Camoletti
DON’T DRESS FOR DINNER is set in a country house some distance from Paris. Bernard and his wife, Jacqueline, have converted an old farm building to use at weekends. On this weekend, Bernard is planning to entertain his mistress while Jacqueline visits her mother.
He’s quickly out-manoeuvred by his stylish wife when she discovers that his alibi, her lover Robert, is coming to keep Bernard company. Add a cordon bleu cook who’s mistaken for the mistress and you have all the ingredients for a naughty French weekend.
A previous adaptation of this play, HAPPY BIRTHDAY by Beverley Cross, was presented at the Apollo Theatre in 1979.
