The Island Players are back in action again this year with another rip roaring comedy guaranteed to have their audiences laughing from start to finish.
The play Don’t Dress for Dinner was written in French by Marc Camoletti and set in Paris but was translated by Robin Haydon and set in London.
In a stylishly converted English farmhouse Bernard is hoping to entertain his London mistress, Suzy for the weekend. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to furnish the gourmet delights and is in the process of packing his wife Jacqueline off to her mother and has even invited his best friend Robert as a suitable alibi.
“The play opens on Wednesday, November 25th at 8pm and the opening night will act as a fundraiser for the Kerry Cork Health Link Bus.”
Say supposing Robert turns up without knowing why he has been invited. Say Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers or how about the cook being mistaken for the mistress and the mistress who can’t cook.
Mix all these ingredients and you have the perfect recipe for an evening of hilarious confusion as Bernard and Robin improvise at break-neck speed.
Taking part in this production are: Tommy Martin, Mick Burke, Mairead O’Mahony, Caroline Healy O’Connor, Hugh Jordan and Rosaleen Higgins. The play is produced by Jerome Stack with stage lighting by Aidan Reidy.
Staging at The Ivy Leaf from Wednesday. 25th to Sunday 29th November, nightly at 8pm. The first night is a fundraiser for the Kerry-Cork Health-Link Bus.
