A second evening for Marc Camoletti’s farce, adapted into English by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans) and now it’s getting the Dubai treatment with a H72 production at The Junction. It has a classic farce plot: swinging bachelor Bernard is simultaneously engaged to Gloria, Gabriella, and Gretchen, all flight attendants who don’t know of each other’s existence. But then things get complicated; his friend Robert comes to stay, there’s a recalcitrant housekeeper who has to keep changing the photographs of the fiancées, and complications such as weather and a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupt his careful planning such that all three air hostesses (no one called them ‘cabin crew’ in the 60s) are unexpectedly in Paris – and indeed in Bernard’s flat – at the same time … Cue confusion, confessions, chaos, and near escapes.
There are final performances at 2.30 7.30pm on 26 November.
