About the show

Boeing Boeing is a French farce play from the 1960s about an American bachelor in Paris named Bernard who has three airline stewardess fiancées from different countries.

Bernard has a flat in Paris and his three fiancés are blissfully ignorant of each other.


Bernard's life gets bumpy, though, when his friend Robert comes to stay, and complications such as weather and a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupt his careful planning.

The English version of the play was first staged in London's West End at the Apollo Theatre in 1962 with David Tomlinson in the lead role and then transferred to the Duchess Theatre in 1965, running for seven years.

After a year in the play, Tomlinson was replaced by Leslie Phillips, who played in it for two years.  He was then replaced by Nicholas Parsons, who played in it for 15 months.
