The hit West End farce

Jacqueline is going away for the weekend so husband Bernard invites his chic Parisian mistress to stay, as well as best friend Robert as an alibi. But Robert and Jacqueline are secretly lovers, so Jacqueline doesn't go away after all… and when the cook and her husband turn up, and Bernard and Robert improvise frantically to cover their tracks, the evening explodes in a comical riot of mistaken identities.

Approx. running time: 2 hours (subject to change)

“Breathtaking farce… faultless” The Guardian
