A Fast-Moving Farce of Marriage, Desire and Cordon Bleu Cuisine

Written by Robin Hawdon & Marc Camoletti

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend at his charming converted French farmhouse with his side-dish, a Parisian model named Suzanne. The first order of business: get his wife, Jacqueline, on a train to see her mother. Second order of business: pick best friend Robert up from the train station because when you’re dating a model it’s hard to keep it a secret, so why bother…

In an effort to impress his paramour, Bernard has hired a Cordon Bleu cook to prepare a flawless dinner. Of course, even the best-laid plans often go awry. Which is what happens when Jacqueline decides to skip mother’s house after all. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as each of the characters are forced to improvise at breakneck speed.
