Two popular TV stars are set to join an already well-known cast in classic comedy, Boeing-Boeing, which heads to Theatre Royal Winchester from Monday 14 – Saturday 19 October.

Emily Head is best known for playing sixth-former, Carli, in the Channel 4 series and film of the same name, The Inbetweeners, as well as starring in ITV’s Emmerdale – like her Boeing-Boeing co-star, Tom Lister – and in beloved play, Abigail’s Party. Emily is also the daughter of Anthony Head, who is known for his role as Rupert Giles in cult TV series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

While TV veteran, Susie Blake, is loved for her long-standing performance in ITV’s Coronation Street, and is currently appearing in BBC’s Mrs Brown’s Boys. She has a wealth of experience in London’s West End, including in the musical Wicked, and touring the country in Grumpy Old Women.

In Boeing-Boeing Susie is set to play the long-suffering housekeeper, Bertha, to devilish bachelor, Bernard – played by Lister (ladies’ man, Carl King in ITV’s Emmerdale) – who has managed to juggle his three flight attendant fiancées – including Emily’s character, Gretchen – three airlines and three timetables, without any of them being aware of the other – until that is, all three women land in his city at the exact same time and want to see him, causing lots of drama and hilarity. Daniel Casey (Sgt Troy in ITV’s Midsomer Murders) also stars as Bernard’s puzzled friend, Robert.

This brand-new production – originally written by French playwright, Marc Camoletti, and set in 1965, – is brought to the stage by Guy Unsworth, who has directed and produced countless shows as well as celebratory events for the Royal Family.

The highly energetic Boeing-Boeing will be at Theatre Royal Winchester from Monday 14 – Sunday 19 October. Find out more or book tickets by visiting www.theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk, or call the Box Office on 01962 840 440.
