Don't Dress for Dinner

DINNER_POSTER_websiteAs a classy Valentine’s treat, KickstArt proudly presents Marc Camoletti’s hilarious comedy about couples !  Don’t Dress for Dinner is a nifty comedy farce about double adultery and gourmet cooking that will have you crying with laughter and begging for more!

In a stylish private game lodge somewhere near the Kruger Park, Bernie is hoping to entertain his chic Johannesburg celebrity mistress, Suzy, for the weekend. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to furnish gourmet delights, is in the process of packing off his wife, Jackie to her mother’s for the weekend, and has even invited along his best friend Rob as a suitable alibi. It’s foolproof. What can possibly go wrong…?

Of course, everything does! It is in fact the perfect recipe for an evening of hilarious confusion as Bernie and Robbie try to escape the ire of the ladies by improvising at breakneck speed.

The glamorous production fields an all star local cast, headed by Tim Wells as the naughty ladies’ man Bernie, and Bryan Hiles as his hapless best friend Rob. Two of Durban’s best and best-loved actresses, Clare Mortimer and Jailoshini Naidoo play Bernie’s wife and mistress respectively, while the super talented Janna Ramos-Violante plays the spunky Afrikaans chef, Suzette. Her husband, the slightly sinister George, is played by exciting young actor and winner of Best Male Newcomer at this years Mercury Durban Theatre Awards, Nhlakanipho Manqele.

Don’t Dress for Dinner will be directed by Steven Stead, with set design by Greg King and lighting by Tina le Roux.  Performances  are at 7.30pm (Tues-Sat), as well as 2.30pm on Saturdays and 5pm on Sundays.

Ticket prices are R130 (R100 discount for students or pensioners).  There is a special Gala Valentine's Performance on Tuesday 14th February for  R160 which includes a glass of sparkling wine upon arrival. (No discounts available.)
