Don't Dress for Dinner
By Marc Camoletti
Adapted by Robin Hawdon
Directed by Kathryn MacMillan
May 24 - June 24, 2018

Bernard wants Suzanne, and his wife Jacqueline wants his best friend Robert. Suzette comes to cook them all dinner, and her husband George might have to set everybody straight in this wickedly funny comedy by French playwright Marc Camoletti. The action spills from the drawing room to the bedroom to the kitchen in this hilarious and fast-moving farce of marriage, lust, and cordon bleu cuisine.
