Le Dîner 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. See You Next Tuesday at the Gate will be the English language world premiere of this sumptuous 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: François, an accountant for the Inland Revenue, whose only passion in life stems from match stick models.

When the paths of these two unlikely dinner companions cross, the result is unexpected and hilarious. Misunderstanding, mistaken, identity, frustration and intrigue all combine to craft the sophisticated comedy that is See You Next Tuesday.

The Gate is delighted to present Ardal O'Hanlon as the hapless François, making his first ever stage appearance. Risteárd Cooper co-writes and performs in RTE'S Après Match, and will make a welcome return to the Gate as Pierre, the other half of the soomed duo. The cast also includes John Kavanagh and Fiona O'Shaughnessy.
