SYNOPSIS OF THE PLAY
Boeing-Boeing is by Marc Camoletti and is translated by Beverley Cross & Francis Evans.
The Story: Bernard, an American businessman living in Paris, smoothly juggles love affairs with three airline hostesses (as they were called back in the 60s), who touch down briefly but amorously in his apartment between flights. There’s Janet, the stunning American stewardess from PanAm; Jacqueline, the sexy French stewardess from Air France; and Judith, the passionate German dominatrix stewardess from Lufthansa. Thanks to Bernard’s keen study of flight schedules and the efficiency of his grumbling French housekeeper, Bertha, his three mistresses have no clue of one another’s existence. But when Bernard’s old school-pal Robert arrives from the Boonies, things get bumpy. Schedule changes, flight delays and chaos ensue in this hysterical, high-flying fiancée-fueled fiasco!
Role Breakdowns [All roles are open]:
Bernard: ( male: Early 30s – Mid 40s) Handsome, energetic, flirtatious and charming. Completely satisfied and confident with his situation.
Robert: ( male: Early 30s – Mid 40s) Naive to the romantic side of life. He’s from Wisconsin/Eastern Oregon, etc. where life is a lot slower.
Jacqueline: (female: Mid 20s – Mid 30s) Sentimental, lusty and French. Very smart and suspicious. (N.B. CAN be Italian, Spanish)
Janet: (female: Mid 20s - Mid 30s) Take-charge, health-obsessed American. Very much a cheerleader rather than an air hostess but definitely brings new meaning to in-flight service with a smile. (N.B. COULD BE BRITISH)
Judith: (female: Mid 20s – Mid 30s) the dominating militant German. Her lower register would scare any man into marrying her… Not to mention her passion. The more extreme the German accent the better!
Bertha: (female: 40s-50s) Taciturn, no-nonsense, gruff, bully French housekeeper who loves nothing more than to complain.
[Special note: The ability to speak in European accents (French, German, Spanish, Italian, etc.) is essential for the women in this show]
