French writer Marc Camoletti's 1960 bedroom farce is a jet-age variation on the classic 19th-century bedroom farce formula perfected by Georges Feydeau. It concerns a playboy juggling three "fiancees"—stewardesses on different airlines, none of whom know about the other two—by keeping a close eye on the ladies' flight schedules. The absurd premise is a perfect example of a comic genre that depends on a playful balance of rationality and hysteria. The 906 Theatre Company's intimate, low-budget, often hilarious rendition of the play nails the script's shrewd mixture of precision and chaos. Director Emma Couling's well-cast, crisply paced production features Aaron Sarka as the narcissistic womanizer; Sarah Sarka, T'Arah Julieta, and Kaelea Rovinsky as his girlfriends; Christine Arnold as his long-suffering housekeeper; and the very funny Billy Sullivan as an unexpected houseguest whose evolving response to the situation drives the plot to its delightfully ridiculous resolution. —Albert Williams
