Tom Lister and Daniel Casey to star in Boeing-Boeing at Richmond Theatre and on tour

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

DAN Looney, Adam Paulden and Jason Haigh-Ellery for DLAP Entertainment have announced a national tour of the classic West End and Broadway comedy Boeing-Boeing.

Starring Tom Lister as Bernard and Daniel Casey as Robert, it opens at Brighton Theatre Royal on September 4, 2019, and visits Richmond Theatre from September 24 to September 28.

Bernard 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 can’t even remember which stories go with which airline….?

Boeing-Boeing is written by Marc Camoletti, translated by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans and is directed by Guy Unsworth.

Tom Lister is best known for his role as Carl King in ITV1’s Emmerdale, a role he played for nine years. He 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 in which he played Wild Bill Hickock.

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.

Further casting will be announced in due course.

Following the Brighton dates (September 4-7), Boeing-Boeing will tour to Glasgow, Southend, Richmond, Guildford, Birmingham, Winchester, Bromley, Derby, Peterborough, Darlington, Northampton, Huddersfield, Crewe, Dartford, Barnstaple, Woking and Nottingham, with more dates to be announced.
