A Hilarious Holiday Soiree: Boeing Boeing Takes Flight at The Lantern



As we deck the halls and trim the tree, The Lantern is thrilled to bring plenty of laughs to your holiday season with our uproarious production of Boeing Boeing by Marc Camoletti, translated by the brilliant duo Beverley Cross & Francis Evans. While it may not be your typical festive fare, this high-flying comedy is set to be the perfect antidote to holiday stress.


Why Comedy for Christmas?

Picture this: while snow blankets the streets (potentially), and the scent of Christmas cakes baking wafts through the air, there's nothing like settling into a cosy seat at The Lantern to enjoy a night of laughter. Comedies have become a cherished tradition during the holiday season, providing a delightful escape from the chaos and a chance to share in the joyous spirit with family and friends.



Boeing Boeing: A Farce Above the Rest

Directed by Rose Killeen, our production of Boeing Boeing promises to be a rollicking ride from takeoff to landing. This classic farce follows the misadventures of Bernard, a bachelor with three flight attendant fiancées from different countries. His carefully orchestrated juggling act takes an unexpected turn when their schedules collide, leading to a hilarious chain of events that will keep you on the edge of your seat.


The fast-paced dialogue, clever misunderstandings, and impeccable timing of Boeing Boeing makes it a timeless comedy that appeals to audiences young and old. As the characters navigate the turbulence of love and deception, you'll find yourself in stitches, revelling in the escapades that unfold on stage.
