It’s the 1960s and bachelor Bernard has got his life sorted: a flat in Paris and three lovely stewardesses who don’t know about each other and who all believe they are engaged to him. But life gets bumpy when Bernard’s friend, Robert, comes to stay and the advent of the new and faster Boeing means all his planning falls apart. It doesn’t take long for all three stewardesses to be in town at the same time, meaning poor Robert has to remember which lies to tell to whom and Bernard’s life heads for a crash landing. This classic farce by French playwright, Marc Camoletti, was first staged in London in 1962.
