April in Paris

Written and directed by John Godber

Al and Bet are not what you’d call ‘love’s young dream’. Bet’s bored, Al’s at his wits’ end and they’re stuck in a romance rut. Then out of the blue the passionless pair win a holiday to Paris!

Will the city of love rekindle some life into this dying relationship? Will they succumb to the allure of l’amour in ‘gay Paris’? Or will it be battle-stations amongst the boulevards?

Join the intrepid pair as they sample the delights of the continent. Will Paris persuade them that they are the perfect partnership or is this the end of ‘la rue’ for Al and Bet?

Nominated for the 1994 Olivier Comedy of the Year, April in Paris is an irresistible dose of pathos and humour.
