In “Don’t Dress for Dinner,” the sequel to “Boeing-Boeing,” Bernard’s plans for a romantic rendezvous with his mistress are complete with a gourmet caterer and an alibi courtesy of his friend, Robert. But when Bernard’s wife learns that Robert will be visiting for the weekend, she decides to stay in town for a surprise tryst of her own… setting the stage for a collision course of hidden identities and outrageous infidelities. The cook is Suzette, the lover is Suzanne, the friend is bewildered, the wife is suspicious, the husband is losing his mind and everyone is guaranteed a good time at this hilarious romp through the French countryside.

For The Record:

“Don’t Dress For Dinner” opened in Paris in 1987, under the original title “Pajamas Pour Six,” and ran for over two years. Robin Hawdon’s adaptation of the original French play premiered in London at the Apollo Theatre in 1991 and ran for six years.
