Set inside an airplane, the entire theater becomes the stage with high-flying action that takes place in and around the audience--in the aisles, galleys and lavatories of a trans-Atlantic flight. Immersed in a mystery, eight 1970's stewardesses find themselves split between the private self and the public persona in this radical adaptation of Maria Irene Fornes' play. Manned by a dedicated crew, Wicket Air Flight 1971 takes off just prior to the crest of the 2nd Wave of feminism on a journey where no man has gone before—to women's struggle in the workplace. On board, these stews look for mysterious signs of life and offer oxygen to a present-day feminism desperately in need of life support.
