Comedy Theatre, London
Matthew Warchus
Gretchen

Boeing Boeing is a French farce written by Marc Camoletti, in which a suave, overconfident man studies airline schedules in order to keep his three mistresses, three air stewardesses working for different airlines, from meeting each other. The comedy escalates when all three women show up at his hotel at the same time.

Michelle Gomez played Gretchen, the German Lufthansa stewardess. Bertha, the maid employed to accommodate the women, was played first by Frances de la Tour and then by Patricia Hodge.
