ABOUT THE SHOW
Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian 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 too to provide the alibi.
It's foolproof; what could possibly go wrong?
Well... suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited.
Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend.
Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress can't cook.
Suppose everyone's alibi gets confused with everyone else's.
An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.
This boulevard comedy was a smash hit in Paris, where it played for over two years, and in London, where it ran for six years at the Apollo and Duchess Theatres.
It has since played in theatres all over the USA and the English speaking world and was revived in Chicago and on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre in 2012.
This production was nominated for two Tony awards.
