"Don’t Dress for Dinner", written by French playwright Marc Camoletti (Boeing Boeing), draws us into a delicious web of marital treachery that hurtles along at the speed of light.
In a renovated French farmhouse about a two hour drive from Paris, Bernard is hoping to send his wife Jacqueline off to her mother’s for the weekend so that he can romance his mistress Suzanne, a Parisian model.
He’s also hired a Cordon Bleu cook, Suzette, as an alibi, and he’s invited his friend Robert to dinner.
Jacqueline, though, is becoming suspicious, and in a phone conversation with Robert it’s revealed that they, too, are also having an affair.
Suzette, the caterer, arrives, and Robert introduces her as his mistress.
Bernard is furious because of the mix-up, and Jacqueline feels betrayed because she thought she was Robert’s only mistress.
Suzette is convinced, for a little extra money, to go along with the deception — but then Suzanne arrives and she now has to pretend she’s the cook!
