This 1960’s French farce adapted for the English-speaking stage features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancées, each a beautiful airline hostess 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.
"This latest edition of a play named for an aircraft soars right out of its time zone and into some unpolluted stratosphere of classic physical comedy. Propelled by the same gusty spirit that animated Commedia dell'Arte and the silent films of Keaton, Chaplin and Lloyd, [this] may be earthy, but it's seldom earthbound." - The New York Times
"This is, by many an airmile, the funniest show on the London stage." - Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph
"I cannot remember experiencing a West End evening of such sheer, silly, comic pleasure." - Nicholas de Jongh, Evening Standard
"Fasten your seatbelts for the most deliriously funny flight of your life." - Georgina Brown, Mail on Sunday
