Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.

Don't Dress for Dinner

CSUSM Alumni and Theatre Club present Don't Dress for Dinner

Don't Dress for Dinner is a hilarious farce set in 1960s Paris. Bernard and Jaqueline are living a not-so-happy marriage and both are keeping secrets from one another. Bernard is seeing another woman and Jaqueline is seeing another man, who happens to be Bernard's best friend, Robert. A relaxing weekend turns into weekend of confusion when Bernard's mistress(Suzanne), Robert, and a cordon Bleu chef (Suzette) all turn up at the same time and now everyone has a role to play to keep these secrets from revealed. Mistresses pretending to be cooks, a cook pretending to a long lost niece, it’s going to be a long night..
