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.
