Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his 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 to provide the alibi. What could possibly go wrong? Everything! Mistaken identities, secret relationships, betrayals and wardrobe malfunctions create an evening of hilarious confusion as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed to save their friendship, Bernard’s marriage, just a touch of their planned gourmet dinner and a shred of their dignity in this hilarious and innocently bawdy bedroom farce.

Don’t Dress for Dinner is an extremely fast-paced, physically demanding production. Actors must be comfortable performing pratfalls and other forms of physical comedy. Actors must also be comfortable with frank sexual dialogue, stage intimacy, and provocative costuming.

JACQUELINE: (F 30-50) – Bernard’s wife, lovely, assertive, romantic, intelligent, a beautiful modern woman, British accent.

ROBERT: (M 30-50) – Bernard’s friend and Jacqueline’s lover, handsome, reserved, seems like an all-around nice guy but is a scoundrel, British accent.
