BOEING BOEING by Marc Camoletti
Devonshire Park Theatre
Tuesday 7 – Saturday 11 June, 7.45pm
Matinees Wednesday & Saturday 2.30pm
Audiences at the Devonshire Park Theatre should get set for a speedy journey back to the sixties with a new translation of Marc Camoletti’s classic farce Boeing Boeing, returning this summer 7 – 11 June.
Jetting back to Paris,1962, Bernard is a successful architect with a very complicated love life. His three fiancées, 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. However, the arrival of an old friend from the provinces and the launch of a new super-fast jet propels Bernard’s carefully constructed plans into comic chaos.
London Classic Theatre are delighted to be touring Boeing Boeing, Camoletti’s signature hit, after recent successes with Same Time, Next Year, Private Lives and Absurd Person Singular.
Marc Camoletti was born in Geneva in 1923. He was a master of the ‘bedroom farce’ and his plays, which include Don’t Dress for Dinner and Ding Ding, have been performed in numerous languages in 55 countries. Camoletti was awarded the Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur, one of France’s highest honours. He died in Deauville, Normandy in 2003.
