SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Bernard is living the good life and engaged to three gorgeous stewardesses. But, life gets bumpy with the introduction of a speedier Boeing jet and an unexpected guest. Chaos and hilarity ensue!

CAST REQUIREMENTS: (2 Males, 4 Females)
Bernard (Male, early 30’s -Late 40’s) Successful American architect, living in Paris; handsome, well-educated, charming; engaged to three air hostesses whom he manages to keep in the dark about one another by managing their visits on a strict timetable; takes boyish pleasure in the success of his devious doings, until his careful planning starts to fall apart, deflating his confidence.

Robert (Male, early 30’s- late 40’s) Bernard’s schoolmate from back in the States; hasn’t seen Bernard in close to 20 years; shy, small-town, midwestern, and sweet—somewhat of a nerd by today’s standards; views Bernard’s whirlwind juggling act of three fiancés with awe and admiration–until he gets wrapped up in it himself and his anxiety spins out of control.

Berthe (Female, early 40’s-late 60’s) French; Bernard’s long-time live-in maid and cook; although devoted to Bernard, she is wearying of keeping up with Bernard’s revolving-door lifestyle, and by play’s end she has been pushed as far as she will go; dry and fantastically sarcastic; never afraid to say what’s on her mind; French accent.

Gloria (Female, early 20’s-early 40’s) Bernard’s American fiancé; air hostess for TWA; epitome of a go-getter American woman; has a vigorous appetite for food and love; completely adorable and supremely confident, but she might punch you if you dared call her “cute”.

Gretchen (Female early 20’s-early 40’s) Bernard’s German fiancé; air hostess for Lufthansa; has an intense Teutonic passion that can spin on a dime—one moment she might be soft and cuddly, and the next barking out orders and breaking furniture; inspires equal amounts of lust and fear in those around her; German accent.

Gabriella (Female early 20’s- early 40’s) Bernard’s Italian fiancé; air hostess for Alitalia; sultry and full of fire, she is much smarter and more self-reliant than she first appears; Italian accent.
