A comedy by Marc Camoleti
Adapted by Robin Hawdon

Directed by Marc Moritz

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 cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along, too, to provide the alibi. It's foolproof! What could possibly go wrong? Well…suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited? Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determine 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? In this hilarious farce, an evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert find that they must improvise at a break-neck speed!

BACKGROUND ON THIS PLAY: Don’t Dress for Dinner began its theatrical life as the comedy titled Pyjamas pour Six by its French author, Marc Camoletti. The first production in Paris in 1987 was a big hit with French audiences, who kept it running for over two years. The English playwright Robin Hawdon (who also wrote the comedy Perfect Wedding, which Weathervane Playhouse presented in 2010) then adapted the play for English-speaking audiences. He also revised Camoletti’s script slightly, but kept the play’s setting in France. Don’t Dress for Dinner proved to be even more popular in London, where it ran for six years beginning in 1991 at the Apollo and Duchess Theatres. Most recently, a 2012 Broadway production by Roundabout Theatre Company earned two Tony Award nominations.
