ICT MainStage’s production of Don’t Dress For Dinner concludes its very successful run this weekend in the Dupree Theater at the Irving Arts Center. Written by Marc Camoletti and directed by ICT mainstay Jill Stephens, Don’t Dress For Dinner has delighted audiences and critics alike. The final three performances begin tonight at 8 PM and run through Saturday evening.
Don’t miss your chance to see what Lyle Huchton of John Garcia’s The Column calls “one of the best ensemble casts I have seen to date.” EDGE Contributor Douglas Dodasovich says “if you’re in the mood for a decadent dessert with unexpected bursts of flavor, put Don’t Dress for Dinner on your grocery list.”
Don’t Dress for Dinner is a frenetic case of mistaken identity with more twists than a corkscrew. When Jacqueline decides to visit her mother for a few days, her husband Bernard sees an opportunity for a cozy weekend with his new mistress. His bachelor pal Robert calls to announce his return from Hong Kong, so Bernard invites him along as his alibi, also hiring a Cordon Bleu-level cook to cater a delicious dinner. But when Jacqueline realizes Robert is coming for a visit everything changes, and the high speed farce begins! One impossible situation leads to another as the hapless friend Robert finds himself the target of both amorous attention and wrathful vengeance, while Bernard tries desperately to salvage a scrap of illicit bliss from the wreckage of a weekend.
