In a stylishly converted French farmhouse, Bernard is hoping to entertain his chic, Parisian mistress, Suzy, for the weekend. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to furnish the gourmet delights, is in the process of packing his wife, Jacqueline, off to her mother, and has even invited along his best friend Robert as a suitable alibi. It's foolproof, what could possibly go wrong ...?
Well, supposing Robert turns up without knowing why he's been invited? Say, Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers? Or how about the cook being mistaken for 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 Robert improvise at breakneck speed!
"Hurtling along at the speed of light, Marc Camoletti's breathtaking farce is a near faultless piece of theatrical invention. Within seconds we are drawn into a delicious web of marital treachery which accelerates with classic symmetry to an all-star denouement." The Guardian
"... a nifty comedy farce about double adultery and gourmet cooking...I can't think of a better way of forgetting the recession." Sunday Times
