Win Tickets to Don’t Dress for Dinner

Comments 30 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The creative team at Richmond’s Gateway Theatre has pulled out all of the stops for their final play of the 2015–2016 season with a presentation of Don’t Dress for Dinner.

This hilarious bedroom farce is written by Marc Camoletti, whose previous comedy, the wildly popular Boeing-Boeing, played to sold out crowds when Arts Club staged it here in 2013. Like Boeing-Boeing, Don’t Dress for Dinner is a farcical comedy that will have audiences rolling in the aisles.

Don’t Dress for Dinner

Where: Gateway Theatre (6500 Gilbert Road, Richmond)
When: April 7–23, 2016 at 8:00pm, with matinees April 9 & 12
Tickets: $45 for adults; $20 for students call the box office at (604) 270-1812 or book online

Adding new twists to the age-old themes of mistaken identity and romantic confusion, Don’t Dress for Dinner is a tale of attempted adultery gone terribly wrong.

With his wife out of town, and armed with a fool-proof alibi from his best friend as well as the perfect setting just outside of Paris lined up for a rendezvous, Bernard thinks he has everything figured out. Or, does he? A missed phone call rapidly transforms a simple, pleasurable evening with his mistress into a complicated night of mistaken identities, confused alibis, double adultery, and a “Suzette” as well as a “Suzanne.”

As with Boeing-Boeing, Camoletti has created the perfect recipe for a frisson of spontaneous laughter. Audiences should be prepared for a healthy serving of hysterical hijinks. Don’t Dress for Dinner is a co-production with Thousand Islands Playhouse and Western Canada Theatre. By Marc Camoletti, adapted by Robin Hawdon.
