“I felt I had to contact you to say what a wonderful play we saw last night at Cronulla – “Don’t Dress for Dinner”.  How entertaining and what excellent acting.  Our group thoroughly enjoyed the show, we could not speak highly enough about the actors, stage setting and all that goes with it.  We also enjoy mingling with the actors at the end, such a pleasure to chat to them. Please pass on our congratulations to all involved and cannot wait for the next play.”  Mary Harrison..

Don’t Dress for Dinner is an adaptation of a two-act play titled Pyjama Pour Six by French playwright Marc Camoletti, who wrote Boeing-Boeing. 

This boulevard comedy was a smash hit in Paris. It played for over two years, and in London, where it ran for six years at the Apollo and Duchess Theatres. It has since played in theatres all over the USA and again in England in 2013.

The reviewer for The Guardian wrote: “Hurtling along at the speed of light, Marc Camoletti’s breathtaking farce is a near faultless piece of theatrical invention”. And within seconds, we are drawn into a delicious web of marital treachery which accelerates with classic symmetry to an all-star denouement… Originally staged in Paris where it ran for two years, the English version has been adapted by Robin Hawdon. And panders to the chauvinism that makes the French mistress intrinsically funnier than an English girlfriend.
