Boeing Boeing is a hilarious farce about the exploits of Bernard, a French bachelor and three lovely flight attendants from three different countries who all believe they're engaged to Bernard. He has always been able to juggle these women due to a detailed timetable of their flight schedules. When things change and the women all end up at his apartment on the same day, he (with help from his bewildered friend Robert) struggles to keep them from learning the truth. Marc Camoletti's theatrical career began in 1958 when three of his plays were presented simultaneously in Paris. The first, La Bonne Anna - ran for 1300 performances and went on to play throughout the world. Boeing Boeing (1962) is considered to be his signature hit. The original London production ran for seven years. His plays have been performed in numerous languages in over 55 countries. Camoletti died in 2003.
