A national tour of the classic West End and Broadway smash hit comedy Boeing-Boeing has been announced for this autumn, starring TV favourites Tom Lister and Daniel Casey.
It will open at Brighton Theatre Royal and be touring the UK until next May.
Bernard (Tom Lister) has managed to keep his three fiancés blissfully unaware of each other – until now.
Three Flight Attendants, three different airlines, three different timetables, each perfectly manoeuvred to avoid Bernard’s intricate love life crashing down to earth.
But it’s 1965, and Boeing have launched a new, faster aeroplane that’s going to create some serious turbulence, with Bernard’s three fiancés landing unexpectedly and simultaneously.
As the hilarity really starts to take off, can Bernard survive while his long-suffering maid struggles to keep up with the changes and his befuddled friend Robert (Daniel Casey) can’t even remember which stories go with which airline….?
Tom Lister is best known for his role as Carl King in ITV1’s Emmerdale, a role he played for nine years. Tom most recently starred as Julian Marsh in the critically acclaimed production of 42nd Street at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane. His other theatre credits include the national tour of Calamity Jane.
Daniel Casey is probably best known for playing Sgt Troy in ITV’s Midsomer Murders and more recently Tom Bailey in BBC1’s EastEnders.
His theatre credits include Laurence in the national tour of Abigail’s Party and Roger Shears in the National Theatre’s production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
