This 1960’s French farce, adapted for the English-speaking stage, features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancees, 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.

AFD has a non-discriminatory, open casting policy, except for this: all actors must be COVID vaccinated.

Character Descriptions: Please note some age ranges have changed since original audition notice

Bernard, Age 30’s to early 40’s
Male

An American architect and lothario who resides in Paris. Bernard is the quintessential 1960’s playboy who is managing three love affairs at the same time. He is a charming, hustling, lovable rascal who has no idea just how in over his head he really is. Must have strong comedic timing and be adept at physical comedy.

Berthe, Age 40- 60
Female

Bernard's French Housekeeper. Berthe has honed her French existential brand of sarcasm to a T. She is the classic grumbling, rye, clever, and ever-complaining house maid who in the end knows how to play her cards right to get what she wants. French accent required. Must have strong comedic timing and be adept at physical comedy.

Robert, Age 30s-early 40’s
Male

Bernard's old school chum from Wisconsin. Robert has lived a simple somewhat sheltered life in Wisconsin. He is sweet, unobtrusive, and shy but turns quickly nervous and clumsy when trying to help Bernard conceal his secrets when circumstances demand. Must have strong comedic timing and be comfortable with physical comedy.

Gabriella, Age late 20’s -30’s
Female

An Italian air hostess and fiancée to Bernard. Gabriella is in love with Bernard but her jealousy can run deep. She is sentimental, lusty, nurturing, and loving but when her jealousy is aroused her temper can flair in the most dramatic fashion. Italian accent required. Must have strong comedic timing.

Gloria, Age late 20’s -30’s
Female

An American air hostess and fiancée to Bernard. Gloria is looking to settle down with the perfect man and Bernard fits the bill, which to her is pure bliss. She is chipper, friendly, and take-charge if not a little on the sensual opportunistic side.

Gretchen, Age late 20’s -30’s
Female

A German air hostess and fiancée to Bernard. Gretchen yearns for extreme passion and has found the perfect fix in Bernard, or so she thinks. She is strong, dominating, and caring but can become quite thin-skinned particularly when her feelings of passion are conflicted. German accent required. Must have strong comedic and physical comedy timing.
