It's 1960 and Parisian lothario Bernard has it good. His three fiancées, one French, one German and one American, are all beautiful airline hostesses with frequent -- but never overlapping -- layovers in Paris. And thanks to Bernard's faithful maid, who swaps out the photographs in his apartment according to schedule, the women will never find out about each other. That is until a new, faster Boeing jet throws the airline schedules out of whack and Bernard finds himself with all three women on his hands at once. Throw in Bernard's friend, who's hilariously bad at keeping all the lies straight, and the whole perfect setup might just fall apart. This slapstick farce from French playwright Marc Camoletti has been performed in London and on Broadway and was made into a 1965 film starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis. Learn More

The Trip to Bountiful
Written by Horton Foote
Directed by Larry Eisenberg
Horton Foote's tender, heartfelt story focuses on Carrie Watts, who dreams of returning to her childhood home in the small town of Bountiful, Texas, which she left three decades ago. She plots a daring journey to the place whose peaceful memory has comforted her in the stressful life she leads with her frail son and shrewish daughter-in-law. The fulfillment of her dream is is both heartbreaking and brilliantly life-affirming, a bittersweet experience that transforms longing into satisfaction.
