SYNOPSIS: Here is a decidedly French dinner party served up in a chaotic mode that only a master of
comedy could create. Five people are invited to dine at a first-rate restaurant in Paris. They do
not know who the other guests will be or why they have been invited. Tossed together in a
private dining room, they have a sneaking suspicion that this unorthodox dinner party will
forever change their lives.
CASTING: All ethnicities are welcome for all characters.
Andre Bouville, 30-40. A very successful man who has little patience. He is aggressive and
Claude Pichon, 30-40. Good looking and sophisticated.
Albert Donay, 30-40. A very nice guy, a bit geeky. He is always a step behind the crowd.
Mariette Levieux, 30-40. A beautiful, strong woman who makes a great first appearance. She
hides her flaws.
Yvonne Fouchet, 30-40. Very shy and somewhat flaky.
