Paris, 1962. Bernard, a successful architect, has a very complicated love life. His three fiancees, Gloria, Gabriella and Gretchen, work for different airlines with different timetables. With the help of his maid, long-suffering Bertha, Bernard has somehow managed to keep all three women blissfully unaware of the others' existence.
When old school chum Robert arrives, Bernard relishes the chance to show his wide-eyed friend his first-class operation at work. Unfortunately, schedules change, flights are delayed and a new turbo-charged Boeing aircraft is introduced: chaos ensues in this hysterical whirl of mayhem and matchmaking.
Artistic Director Michael Cabot said "I'm very excited to be working on this wonderful piece with a terrific cast and creative team. Boeing Boeing is one of the longest running and most successful farces ever written for the stage. In terms of comedy, it really has got it all - larger than life characters, an improbable plot and an abundance of comic mayhem. It promises to be great fun, but I also hope we can bring a contemporary twist to the story - the women in the play are definitely no pushover and Bernard will be getting a very powerful taste of his own medicine."
Marc Camoletti's award-winning play was a West End and Broadway hit and has delighted audiences worldwide for over 50 years. London Classic Theatre are delighted to be touring Boeing Boeing, his signature hit, after recent successes with Private Lives and Absurd Person Singular.
