Win one of five double passes

If you’re looking to start the new year with a good laugh then look no further than Harbour Theatre’s first production for 2018 – Don’t Dress for Dinner. Following the initial 2-year run in Paris under the title Pajames pour Six, Robin Hawdon’s adaptation opened in 1997 and ran for 6 years in London’s West End, becoming the longest running comedy ever. Five lucky readers can win an in-season double pass. Look for the How to Enter details on this page.

Directed by Ann Speicher, Don’t Dress for Dinner has all the ingredients of a classic French farce including infidelity, misunderstandings and mistaken identities. Bernard hopes to entertain his chic mistress while his wife Jacqueline visits her mother. He’s hired a cook and invited along his best friend Robert, as a suitable alibi. Perfect planning…or so he thinks! Supposing the wife and Robert are secret lovers and she decides to stay home after learning he is about to arrive? What if the cook and the mistress, whose names are confusingly similar, are mistaken for each other and have to exchange roles for the evening? Add to that the unexpected appearance of a jealous husband and you have the recipe for a hilarious evening!

Don’t Dress for Dinner plays on 23, 24, 26, 28 Feb and 1, 2, 3 March @ 7.30pm with matinees on 25 Feb & 4 March 4 at 2pm. Performed in the lovely art deco atmosphere of Camelot, with Arthur’s Cafe & Bar, there is simply no better place to be. Camelot – 16 Lochee Street, Mosman Park. Bookings @ or call 9255 3336.
