“Hurtling along at the speed of light, this breathtaking farce is a near faultless piece of theatrical invention” – The Guardian
Gremlin Theatre is thrilled to open our brand new performance space (and 20th season!) with the absolutely hilarious comedy Don’t Dress for Dinner – the first show we ever produced 19 years ago.
“Two of the most rib-tickling hilarious hours I have spent in the theatre in some time… the perfect farce.” – Chicago Style Magazine
Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic mistress in his charming converted farmhouse (while his wife, Jacqueline, is away, of course). He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights and has even invited his best friend, Robert, to provide the alibi. What could possibly go wrong…?
From the author of the smash hit Boeing Boeing comes this fast-paced and utterly ridiculous play; full of romantic entanglements, mistaken identities and outrageous plot twists.
Come celebrate the opening of our new theatre, have a beer at the adjacent Lake Monster Brewery and take in the ideal show to send you laughing into the summer night.
Don’t Dress for Dinner opens Friday, July 7th and runs through Sunday, July 30th at the brand new Gremlin Theatre.
Tickets are $28.00 for General Admission and Under 30 pay half your age every night! Discounts are available for Seniors & Fringe button holders.
Free parking is available in the huge lot on Wabash Avenue near the water tower and enter the double doors next to the brewery.
