Show description:
Bernard is attempting to rush his wife, Jacqueline, off to her mother’s for the weekend so he can enjoy a tryst with his model girlfriend, Suzanne. Jacqueline cancels her plans at the last minute when she learns that Bernard has also invited his best friend, Robert, who is her secret lover. The complications pile on when Bernard persuades a reluctant Robert to pretend to be Suzanne’s boyfriend, making Jacqueline furiously jealous. Because Robert has never met Suzanne (aka Suzy), he mistakenly introduces the catering chef, Suzette (also nicknamed Suzy) as his girlfriend. During the course of the evening, Suzette masquerades as Bernard’s lover and Robert’s niece, in addition to being the wife of the muscular and threatening George. Set in a converted barn in the French countryside, the play has all the usual conventions of farce, including a great deal of physical comedy.

Characters: The script does not specify ages for the characters so there will be flexibility in casting. The director will be looking for the best fit in terms of the demands of the play and the chemistry between actors.

---Bernard – Jacqueline’s husband and Suzanne’s lover. He is a businessman, a flirtatious, self-assured, country gentleman. British accent.

---Jacqueline – Bernard’s wife and Robert’s lover. She is a beautiful modern woman, assertive and intelligent. British accent.

---Robert – Bernard’s best friend and Jacqueline’s lover. He is reserved and nervous. British accent.

---Suzette – the cook. She is a friendly, clever, working class young woman; a swan beneath the duckling exterior. French accent.

---Suzanne – Bernard’s mistress. She is a fashion model, chic and stylish. British accent.

---George – Suzette’s husband. He is big and strong, protective of Suzette, and doesn’t indulge in foolishness. French accent.
