About this show

Bonnie's Last Flight is a three-part play set on a plane. Our audience makes the trip as passengers: sitting on a tarmac before takeoff, floating at cruising altitude, and buckling down for the wild and rocky descent back to land.

It's Jan's retirement flight. Everyone knows, except for Greig, Jan's best friend and coworker of many years. As Greig waxes nostalgic, Jan worries about life postretirement. LeeAnne, a klutzy newbie flight attendant with a dark past, must avoid her ex on the plane while Captain, a waggish pilot with a weakness for unlimited Bloody Mary brunches, is caught in a love triangle. Erik, the co-pilot with a heart of gold, can't get a word in edgewise. Presiding over the flight is Mark Twain, of course. In a comedy set on everyone's least favorite mode of transit, we must reckon with our crew's dreams and regrets and ask ourselves: What is the best way to live and how?
