Directed by Robin Lefevre, the play was at the Gate Theatre Dublin last year starring Ardal O'Hanlon and Risteard Cooper. The show will play at the Richmond Theatre, south London (28 Aug - 6 Sep), and Theatre Royal Brighton (8 - 13 Sep 03) before its West End run.
"Le Diner de Cons" opened in Paris in 1993 and went on to enjoy phenomenal success. A later screen adaptation became one of the highest grossing films in France.
In this comedy the urbane Pierre has it all: money from his job as a successful publisher, a beautiful wife, an adoring mistress and numerous friends. He also has an unusual pastime... every Tuesday he and his friends dine with a different so-called 'twat'. It is this that brings Pierre into contact with the finest example of a twat he believes he has ever met: Francois, an accountant for the Inland Revenue, whose only passion in life stems from matchstick models. When the paths of these two unlikely dinner companions cross, the result is unexpected .
Misunderstanding, mistaken identity, frustration and intrigue all combine to craft this comedy.
