Boeing, Boeing is a farce written by the French playwright Marc Camoletti, and is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the most performed French play throughout the world. Boeing, Boeing tells the exploits of French bachelor Bernard and three flight attendants, from three different countries: and they all believe they’re engaged to Bernard!
Boeing, Boeing is set in the 1960s, and centers on bachelor Bernard, who has a flat in Paris and three attractive stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard's life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay, and a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupts his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in the city simultaneously, timid Robert forgets which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms.
(Very demanding physical comedic roles.)
