Prepare to laugh as Workshop Theatre presents Robin Hawdon's adaptation of Marc Camoletti's Don't Dress for Dinner opening May 12 at The Market Space at 701 Whaley. The hijinks abound in this outlandish and hilarious farce.

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend at his charming converted French farmhouse with his young lover, a Parisian model named Suzanne. The frst order of business: get his wife, Jacqueline, on a train to see her mother! Second order of business: pick best friend Robert up from the train station to provide an alibi. In an effort to impress his lover, Bernard has hired a Cordon Bleu cook to prepare a flawless dinner. Of course, even the best laid plans often go awry. Which is exactly what happens when Jacqueline decides to skip her trip and remain at the farmhouse. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as each of the characters are forced to improvise at breakneck speed. Poor Bernard, however will he get himself out of this mess?

Frank Thompson directs a talented cast that includes Ripley Thames, Zsuzsa Manna, Ellen Rodillo-Fowler, Christine Hellman, Scott Means, and David Wilhite.
