Performances at the Pumphouse Theatre October 4 – 12, 2013
A Farce by Mac Camoletti. Translated by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans
Ladies and gentlemen, if you would please take your seats and direct your attention to the front of the theatre, where you are sure to be met with the turbulent fun and laughter of classic farce as its best. Your director for this season’s opener is James Noonan as Morpheus Theatre starts the season off right with Boeing Boeing: a farce in every theatrical and hilarious sense of the word.
We’ll bring the fun to you; no need to worry about losing your luggage or jet lag – but if you are swinging bachelor, Bernard, you do need to worry about which fiancée is which, from where…and when…and when a faster Boeing lands them all in the same place at the same time, you’d definitely need to worry about how you’ll possibly get through it all!
Is it love, l’amour or lieben? Ooh la la! Luckily, you get to sit back, relax and enjoy the show. In the case of uproarious laughter, please place your hands on your belly and laugh some more. Fly fast, funny and farcical with us this September with Boeing Boeing and thank ou for laughing with Morpheus Theatre.
