Synopsis: This high-flying farce of the swinging '60 finds a free-spirited lothario, Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancées, each beautiful airline hostesses with frequent layovers. He keeps "one up, one down and one pending" until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernard's apartment at the same time. Please close your snack trays and bring your seat backs to an upright position.
The Character breakdown is as follows:
||Age 20s-40s. An 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.
||Age 20s-40s. 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 fiancées with awe and admiration--until he gets wrapped up in it himself and his anxiety spins out of control.
||Age 40s+. French; 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; dry and fantastically sarcastic; never afraid to say what's on her mind; French accent.
||Age 20s-40s. 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.
||Age 20s-40s. 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.
||Age 20s-40s. 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"; New York accent.
