Don't Dress for Dinner by Marc Camoletti (adapted by Robin Hawdon)
Marc Camoletti’s farcical comedy was a smash-hit in Paris, under the original title “Pyjamas pour Six”. Robin Hawdon’s adaptation of this French original was premiered in 1991 and played to critical acclaim at London’s Apollo Theatre, starring Simon Cadell and Su Pollard.
In a stylishly converted French farmhouse, Bernard is hoping to entertain his chic, Parisian mistress, Suzy, for the weekend. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to furnish the gourmet delights, is in the process of packing his wife, Jacqueline, off to her mother, and has even invited along his best friend Robert as a suitable alibi.
It’s foolproof, what could possibly go wrong . . .?
Charles Cregor, Director
