Don't Dress for Dinner

written by: 
Marc Camoletti, adapted by Robin Hawdon
directed by: 
Dinah Marti

Bernard and Jacqueline live in a lovely renovated farmhouse just outside of Paris. Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his mistress, Suzanne, and eagerly waiting for Jacqueline to leave for the weekend. Jacqueline, however, decides to stay when she finds out that Bernhard has invited Robert, her lover, along with a Cordon Bleu cook, Suzette. Desperate to cover his own affair, Bernard convinces Robert to tell Jacqueline that Suzanne is his (Bernhard's) girlfriend. But Robert mistakes the cook Suzette for Suzanne...and so the plot twists once more.
