    "Flight" is a new two-character play set in three different airport bars around the world. Comparable in literary style to "Bash" (by Neil LaBute), "Flight" is a dark, comic piece about confronting, hiding and destroying the parts of ourselves that we hate. The play is structured into two (40 minute) monologues (a man and a woman) and finally a dialogue between them. The woman's (Rebekka Grella) monologue takes place at JFK and deals with a young woman who moves to New York with lofty aspirations. Although, at first, happy in New York, and surrounded by new (mostly male) friends, she soon discovers that her boyfriend is sleeping with the majority of them. After this, unfortunately, the city devours her. It changes her perception of "life" as she becomes, through various incidents, more and more dissociated with what she once was, or thought she was. (This segment is based on the play "Take" produced at the 2001 New York Fringe Festival.) The man's (Benjamin Alfonsi) monologue is set in Singapore International Airport. A young man with several "unsettled" mental issues returns from visiting his estranged father. In Southeast Asia he finds his father living a new lifestyle complete with servants (who serve as a new "purchased" family) and a seedy nightlife of prostitution and heavy drinking.
