ABOUT THE PLAY
It’s the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier: a ritzy apartment in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to visit, and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms. A riotous farce that recently enjoyed hit revivals in London and New York.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS
Bernard 30s+
An American architect living in Paris; handsome, well-educated, charming; engaged to three stewardesses 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 30s+
Bernard’s schoolmate from back in the States; hasn’t seen Bernard in many years; shy, small-town, Midwestern, and sweet- a nerd by today’s standards; views Bernard’s whirlwind juggling act of three fiances with awe and admiration–until he gets wrapped up in it himself and his anxiety spins out of control.

Berthe 40s+
Bernard’s long-time live-in maid and cook; although devoted to Bernard, she is tired of keeping up with Bernard’s revolving-door lifestyle, and by play’s end she has been pushed as far as she will go; acidic and fantastically sarcastic; NEVER afraid to say what’s on her mind.

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

Gretchen 20s-40s
Bernard’s German fiance; 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

Gloria 20s-40s
Bernard’s American fiance; air hostess for TWA; epitome of a American woman from the South; has a vigorous appetite for food and love; completely adorable and supremely confident, but she can easily disarm you with her Southern charm; Southern accent.
