Boeing-Boeing (Marc Camoletti, 1960). This classic farce, translated into English by Beverley Cross, has been listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the most performed French play throughout the world. Set in the 1960’s, Boeing-Boeing features a swinger bachelor (Bernard) who couldn’t be happier: he has a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. However, when his friend Robert comes to stay, things get bumpy and even bumpier when the new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously.
Robert, being ill-equipped to lie, cannot remember which fabrication to tell to whom...catastrophe looms, hilarity ensues. Boeing-Boeing won the Tony Award for Best Revival of play as well as the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Play.
