Boeing Boeing is a 1960s French farce for the English-speaking stage. Self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard has three fiancees, each beautiful airline hostesses with frequent "layovers".

There's American Gloria, German Gretchen and Italian Gabriella. He keeps "one up, one down and one pending" until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and his appartment at the same time.

Bernard's old school friend Robert, a vistor from the provinces, and his housekeeper Bertha, attempt to diffuse the inevitable chaos.
