"Don't Dress for Dinner" is the hilarious and stylish sequel to the classic "Boeing Boeing". Ten years have passed and the roguish stars of "Boeing Boeing", Robert and Bernard, have "settled down." But that doesn't stop the rush of sexy shenanigans, mix-ups and wild coincidences that keep this farce moving from curtain up. Bernard's plan for a rendezvous in the countryside with his mistress takes an unexpected turn when his wife decides to stay in town for a tryst of her own with Robert ... who had supplied Bernard with his alibi. With a cook named Suzette, a lover named Suzanne, a confused friend and a suspicious wife, you have all the ingredients for a truly scrumptious comedic soufflé. "The Guardian" called "Don't Dress for Dinner" "a near faultless piece of theatrical invention." Enjoy all the farcical fun at the Pocket Sandwich Theatre in Dallas. [less-]
