SYNOPSIS: Don't Dress For Dinner centers around Bernard and Jacqueline, a not-so-happily married couple, both of whom are having extramarital affairs. As Jacqueline prepares to go out of town to visit her mother, Bernard invites his mistress and Robert, his best friend (and also Jacqueline's lover, unbeknownst to Bernard), over for the weekend. He's even hired a Cordon Bleu chef to cater the evening. Jacqueline discovers Robert is coming to town and cancels her trip, causing Bernard to panic. When Robert arrives, Bernard asks him to pretend Suzanne is Robert's mistress. Robert mistakes the chef (Suzette), for Bernard's mistress (Suzanne), producing a highly complicated dinner of hilarious hijinks, secret trysts and slapstick comedy.

The Characters: (3 male and 3 female)

Bernard: A suave and debonair architect, husband to Jaqueline. He is confident and sure he has made the perfect plan for his upcoming weekend. Think Madmen meets Inspector Clouseau.

Jaqueline: Wife to Bernard, who has not been paying her enough attention! She is cultured, but flighty and prone to quick anger or upset.

Robert: Being from the Country, Robert is a little less cultured than Bernard but they are old school chums and consider each other to be best friends. Also lover of Bernard's wife Jaqueline. Think Madmen meets Inspector Clouseau's sidekick Kato.

Suzette: The cordon bleu cook hired by Bernard, she is curvaceous and sassy, while from Paris she is not as high class as others and she is definitely not the model type.

Suzanne: Bernard's model /mistress, temperamental and pampered by Bernard. Very much used to all the good things life offers and expects them. Definitely the model type.

George: Is Suzette's husband, also a chef and a very down to earth Frenchman who is extremely jealous of his Suzette.
