|Description:||A comedy by French author Marc Camoletti
adapted for the English stage by Tudor Gates
directed by Mark Phythian
Bernard has discovered that his wife, Jacqueline, is having an affair with Robert. Being a reasonable businessman, Bernard gives Robert two options to compensate for the affair: either he will sleep with Robert's wife in order to keep things even, or he will have him killed. Needless to say, Robert relents to letting Bernard sleep with his wife.
Scheming to woo her, Bernard arranges an evening meal with both couples present - much to the frustration of their overworked and underpaid maid, Marie-Louise. However, instead of bringing his wife to the dinner, Robert pays Barbara, a call girl, to pose as his wife for the evening.
The situation then becomes even more hilarious and confusing when Robert's actual wife, Juliette, turns up for dinner.
