Scotland, 1945: Seven young women, all members of the Women's Royal Naval Service (aka Wrens), are packed together in a tiny barrack on the eve of V-E Day. All from different backgrounds, regions, religions and classes, the women must confront complex emotions and decisions as they face the prospect of peace, which also means an end to their newfound wartime independence in Wrens. Written by Anne McGravie, this semi-autobiographical drama is an examination of loyalty, morality and duty during World War II. Learn More

This show was very funny and clever. It is a typical British comedy, the kind with several doors slamming, characters coming in and out, mistaken identity, and lots of laughs.
I saw this show a year ago, and surprisingly, this was the same exact cast that I saw then, but with a different actress playing the maid! I would definitely recommend this show, especially if you are a fan of the 60's and the style and glamour of air travel.

This hilarious 1960’s romp, immortalized by Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis on film, has a handsome bachelor juggling three international flight attendant fiancées. In this comedy, an architect living in Paris has been successfully juggling three flight attendant fiancées with his housekeeper reluctantly playing romantic air-traffic controller as they fly in and out of his swank bachelor pad. But when an old school pal visits, things get rather turbulent. Schedules change, flights are delayed and chaos ensues in this whirl of mayhem and matchmaking.
This classic farce was written in the 1960’s by French playwright Marc Camoletti. An English translation became a smash hit in London’s West End, and a recent Broadway revival brought it to the attention of an American audience.
