July 17 – August 11, 2024

The most requested return engagement of the past twenty years, DON’T DRESS FOR DINNER is written in the style of a classic French farce, full of mistaken identities, rapid-fire dialogue, and unexpected twists. Witty dialogue, funny sight gags and a touch of slapstick are just a few ingredients that make DON’T DRESS FOR DINNER simmer into action. Playwright Marc Camoletti’s recipe for comedic confusion combines some sexy hanky-panky, mistaken identity, and, of course, dinner in a French country house. Audiences will be laughing from start to finish at the antics of these lovable (and sometimes not-so-lovable) characters. Don’t miss this deliciously hilarious night of theatre.

This production made possible by the generous support of Bobbie Ball.
