“Don’t Dress for Dinner” at Hampton Theatre Company
May 24, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - June 10, 2018 @ 2:30 pm$30
Bernard is planning a romantic weekend at his home with his chic Parisian mistress while his wife Jacqueline is away. He has arranged for a Cordon Bleu chef to prepare gourmet delights and has also invited his best friend Robert to provide an alibi. What could possibly go wrong? For starters, Robert and Jacqueline are actually secret lovers and are determined that Jacqueline will not leave for the weekend; the cook has to pretend she is the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. As everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s, an evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard, Robert and Jacqueline are forced to improvise at breakneck speed.
This bawdy bedroom farce offers “two of the most rib-tickling, hilarious hours I have spent in the theatre in some time” (Chicago Style Magazine).
