Boeing-Boeing is a farce written by the French playwright Marc Camoletti. The English language version was translated by Beverley Cross, and first staged in London at the Apollo Theatre in 1962 and transferred to the Duchess Theatre in 1965, running for seven years. In 1991, Boeing Boeing was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the most performed French play throughout the world.


The play is set in the swinging 1960s, and centers on lothario bachelor Bernard, who has a flat in Paris and three airline stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. Bernard's life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay, and complications such as weather and  new, speedier Boeing jet disrupt his careful planning. Soon, all three stewardesses are in the city simultaneously and catastrophe looms.

BOEING BOEING  BY Marc Camelotti


Bernard Male, 30-50 
An American architect and lothario who resides in Paris. Bernard is the quintessential 1960’s playboy who is managing three love affairs at the same time. He is a charming, hustling, lovable rascal who has no idea just how in over his head he really is.

Berthe/Bertram Female Male, 30-70 (French accent) 

Bernard's French Housekeeper/manservant. Berthe/Bertam has honed French existential brand of sarcasm to a T. The classic grumbling, rye, clever, and ever-complaining house maid/manservant who in the end knows how to play her/his cards right to get what she/he wants.


Robert Male, 30–50 
Bernard's old school chum from Wisconsin. Robert has lived a simple somewhat sheltered life in Wisconsin. He is sweet, unobtrusive, and shy but turns quickly nervous and clumsy when trying to help Bernard conceal his secrets when circumstances demand.

Gabriella  Female, 20-40 (Italian accent)
An Italian air hostess and fiancée to Bernard. Gabriella is in love with Bernard but her jealousy can run deep. She is sentimental, lusty, nurturing, and loving but when her jealousy is aroused her temper can flair in the most dramatic fashion.

Gloria Female, 20-40 
An American air hostess and fiancée to Bernard. Gloria is looking to settle down with the perfect man and Bernard fits the bill, which to her is pure bliss. She is chipper, friendly, and take-charge if not a little on the sensual opportunistic side.

Gretchen, Female, 20-40 (German accent)
A German air hostess and fiancée to Bernard. Gretchen yearns for extreme passion and has found the perfect fix in Bernard, or so she thinks. She is strong, dominating, and caring but can become quite thin-skinned particularly when her feelings of passion are conflicted.
