Don’t Dress for Dinner
An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as ‘Jai’ and ‘Dev’ try to save their naughty romantic weekend at a farmhouse.
This play is an adaptation of Marc Camoletti’s ‘Don’t Dress for Dinner’.
‘Jai’ is planning a romantic weekend with his girlfriend at his farmhouse, whilst his wife, Radhika, is away. He has arranged for a cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Dev, along as well to be an alibi. It’s foolproof; what could possibly go wrong?
Well, suppose Dev turns up not realising quite why he has been invited. Suppose Dev and Radhika are actually secret lovers, and consequently determined that Radhika will NOT leave for the weekend ?
Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the girlfriend and the girlfriend is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s !!
An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Jai and Dev improvise at breakneck speed.
God save everyone !
