The Footlight Players, South Carolina's longest-producing theatre company, is thrilled to open their 83rd season with the smash-hit “Don't Dress for Dinner,” written by Marc Camoletti and adapted by Robin Hawdon. Jo Ellen Aspinwall directs a stellar cast through a delicious web of marital treachery.
In “Don't Dress for Dinner,” Bernard's plans for a romantic rendezvous with his chic Parisian mistress are complete with a gourmet caterer and an alibi courtesy of his friend, Robert. But when Bernard's wife learns that Robert will be visiting for the weekend, she decides to stay in town for a surprise tryst of her own, setting the stage for a collision course of mistaken identities and outrageous infidelities, with more twists than a corkscrew. The cook is Suzette; the lover is Suzanne; the friend is bewildered; the wife is suspicious; the husband is losing his mind and everyone is guaranteed a good time at this hilarious romp through the French countryside.
The cast includes Billy Turner as Bernard, Sarah Wallis Craven as Jacqueline, Jay Danner as Robert, Krissy McKown as Suzanne, Victoria Vaughn as Suzette and Darryl LaPlante as George.
Performances of Don't Dress for Dinner are August 1, 2, 7-9, 14-16 at 8 p.m. and August 10 and 17 at 3 p.m. All performances will be held at the Footlight Players Theatre, 20 Queen St., Charleston, South Carolina.
