Pieter Toerien and KickstArt present Marc Camoletti’s hilarious comedy Don’t Dress For Dinner at Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theatre from 8 March – 14 April.

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 James Cuningham as the naughty ladies’ man Bernie, and Robert Fridjhon as his hapless best friend Rob. Natasha Sutherland returns to grace the stage as Jackie, Bernie’s cool, attractive and rather intimidating wife, and Emily Child plays Bernie’s sexy M-Net presenter mistress, while 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 2011 Mercury Durban Theatre Awards, Nhlakanipho Manqele.

Don’t Dress for Dinner will be directed by Steven Stead, designed by Greg King, with lighting by Tina le Roux.

It will run at Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theatre from 6 March - 14 April, with performances scheduled from Wednesday to Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 5pm and 8pm, Sunday at 3pm … and at Theatre on the Bay from 18 April - 11 May.

All bookings at the theatre and Computicket - 011 511 1818.
