London Classic Theatre return to Bath with a hilarious new production of one of the greatest plays from the master of the French farce.

Paris, 1962. Bernard, a successful architect, has a very complicated love life.

His three fancées, 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 propel Bernard’s carefully constructed plans into comic chaos.

Marc Camoletti’s award-winning play was a West End and Broadway hit and has delighted audiences worldwide for over 50 years.

London Classic Theatre are delighted to be touring Boeing Boeing, his signature hit, after recent successes with 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.

“Works like a comic dream… I cannot remember experiencing an evening of such sheer, silly, comic pleasure”Evening Standard

“Will have you reaching for your hankie to mop up the tears of hysterical laughter” Mail on Sunday

“A perfectly controlled, geometrically planned disorder, confirming that farce is the quintessence of theatre” Guardian
