Veryan Players next production - Don’t Dress for Dinner – A Comedy

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic London mistress in his charming converted Cornish Farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away.  He has arranged for a Cordon Bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along to provide the alibi.  It’s foolproof; what could possibly go wrong?

Well…..suppose Robert turns up not realising quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s.

An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.

The play will be performed on the 28th, 29th and 30th November 2019 at Veryan Parish Hall. Tickets will be available from the beginning of November from Veryan and Portloe General Stores or by email:





Veryan Players are an amateur dramatic group who perform a range of productions ranging from serious to farce. The only thing we don't do is Pantomime, we leave that to our friends at St. Mawes and Tregony. We usually perform two plays a year. We are always looking for new acting members (Particularly 18 to 40) and anyone else who wants to be involved in local theatre.
