Boeing Boeing at Comedy from 3 Feb 2007 with Roger Allam, Frances De La Tour & Mark Rylance

Boeing Boeing by Marc Camoletti, translated by Beverley Cross, will open at the Comedy Theatre 15 Feb 2007, following previews from 3 Feb - booking to 28 April 2007.

Directed by Matthew Warchus, the cast includes Roger Allam (Bernard), Frances De La Tour (Bertha) , Mark Rylance (Robert).

Bernard is an English playboy in Paris with an insatiable appetite for beautiful women. His three girlfriends are all air hostesses- working for a variety of different airlines- however, each believes she is his one true love, and accordingly they must never meet. Bernard has devised a sophisticated timetable to organise his love affairs so they can each spend the night at his apartment whenever they stop over in Paris. Bertha , Bernard's long suffering and faithful housekeeper, has a hard time managing his complicated love life, preparing special diets for each woman and generally keeping track of what is going on. Everything proceeds like clockwork, until the arrival of the new 'Super Boeing' (at double the speed), which changes the schedules of the airlines, and Bernard suddenly has a lot of explaining to do! His old school friend Robert arrives unexpectedly from England and unwittingly joins them in a hysterical whirlwind of mayhem and matchmaking!
