Don't Dress for Dinner
February 6, 7, 8, 13, 14 & 15
By Marc Camoletti, Adapted by Robin Hawdon
Farce | Rated PG13
Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along to provide the alibi. It’s foolproof; what could possibly go wrong?
Well... suppose Robert turns up not realizing why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.
The cast that will bring these high energy hijinks to the Old Opera House stage includes Charlie Perkins, Christine Brewer, Alan Harner, Kelly Pannill, Tia Coode, and Will Heyser.
