SYNOPSIS: 

 

Bernard, a swinging yuppie bachelor with an insatiable appetite for women, thinks he can easily cope with three air stewardess girlfriends. It’s all a question of juggling their timetables and everything proceeds like clockwork, until the arrival of a new "Super Boeing" plane (travelling at double the speed!) and he is landed with a huge problem on his hands as they all arrive at once, along with an unexpected visit from his old school friend Robert, who joins them in an hysterical whirl of confusion and matchmaking.


'Boeing Boeing' holds the record for being the longest running comedy in the history of French theatre and became a successful Hollywood movie starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis.


BHTC NOTES: Theatre club publicity for the production incorporated an Easter bonnet competition (See press articles below)
