There are certain types of people that you will always find on an airplane. The lady with the screaming baby. The surly flight attendant. The large, smelly people you inevitably get stuck sitting between. And they all have their own stories. What starts out as an ordinary flight takes 12 people on an extraordinary journey that turns their lives upside down in this musical comedy. This is a staged reading performance (with potential opportunity for full-scale performances).
JENNY (soprano): A very unfortunate and long-suffering young woman, who is currently having the worst month of her life.
TANYA (mezzo): Easily irritable, clever and blunt. She does not care about being pleasant or likeable, and she enjoys messing with people’s heads. She is on a business trip.
RYAN (tenor): A slightly overdramatic daydreamer who is lucky enough to be seated next to Claire, and quickly becomes convinced that she is his soul mate.
HANK (Baritone): A grumpy, smelly, middle-aged man. Hank and Irene are the classic stereotypical old married couple. They sleep in separate beds, they bicker constantly, and they have completely forgotten why they were ever in love in the first place.
IRENE (mezzo): A bitter, fat, middle-aged woman. Hank and Irene are the classic stereotypical old married couple. They sleep in separate beds, they bicker constantly, and they have completely forgotten why they were ever in love in the first place.
SYDNEY (soprano): A gentle and sweet flight attendant. She is not the sharpest tool in the box, but she’s pretty, so she’s everyone’s favorite.
ENSEMBLE MEMBERS: Other passengers on the airplane. Fun back-up singing opportunities. Maracas may or may not be included.
