In this hilarious farce, Bernard, a successful architect, juggles three flight attendant fiancées: one American, one Italian, and one German. He tracks their airlines’ timetables, and his long-suffering housekeeper reluctantly resets the menus and bedroom decor depending on the arrivals and departures.
Bernard has been successful at convincing each woman that she is the only one. Bernard’s old school friend Robert arrives unexpectedly, and Bernard proudly explains to his friend how he makes his busy romantic schedule run smoothly.
Unfortunately for Bernard, a new, faster Boeing jet has been introduced, changing the timetable. Weather delays occur, and complications arise when things do not match Bernard’s careful planning. Robert steps in to help by keeping the women busy as they arrive. It becomes increasingly difficult for the team to keep the women separate once they all arrive, and the lies told become ever more difficult to reconcile.
Recommended for ages 13+.

FROM THE PRESS
"There’s probably no mid-sized Southland theater with a better track record at comedies than the Norris ... The uproariously funny Boeing-Boeing upholds that record, and then some."
"... this cast wrings out every square inch of the absurdity, and director James Gruessing pushes the physical comedy and pacing to the breaking point, with humorous results."
