Quarndon Amateur Dramatic Society (QUADS) return to the stage this month with Marc Camoletti’s Don’t Dress For Dinner – a frenetic and deliciously uproarious farce from the writer of Boeing Boeing.
Set at the end of the Swinging Sixties, Don’t Dress for Dinner is a contemporary take on the French Farce genre. It is centred on the escapades of a married couple who are both having affairs and has the classic ingredients of mistaken identities, comings and goings, and wrong assumptions being made.
With his wife out of town, Bernard’s plans for a romantic weekend with his mistress are complete with a gourmet caterer booked and an alibi arranged, courtesy of his best friend Robert who has just returned from overseas.
When Bernard’s wife learns that Robert will be visiting for the weekend, she decides to stay around for a surprise tryst of her own … setting the stage for a collision course of outrageous infidelities.
The comedy show is being staged at Quarndon Village Hall, from May 17-19 at 7.45pm.
