Suitcase, suitcase, who's got the suitcase? is the urgent question in this hilarious farce set in a Caribbean hotel. One composite set represents the hotel's lobby, elevator, and second floor. The comedy charts the confusion that occurs when June, an earnest aerobics instructor, unknowingly acquires the cash filled suitcase of two money launderers from Cleveland. Their attempts to retrieve it cause a soft core movie director to mistake June for the next star of his basement budget production "Tan All Over". Then he discovers the money and joins the convoluted efforts to get the suitcase. Interference is provided by his former star who is now an outraged moralist, a nervous chemistry instructor visiting the island under duress, the hotel owner and her sticky fingered nephew. Wild chases, bizarre disguises, and the silliest looking aerobics dance ever make this a truly riotous farce.
Bottoms Up! was first performed Aug 3, 1989 at the Brooke Hills Playhouse, Wellsberg, West Virginia.
