Al and Bet’s relationship is on the rocks. He has recently lost his job, she works in a shoe shop and can only dream of a better life, but things are about to change.

When Bet wins a romantic night in the city of love, Al wonders who she’ll take along! Resigned to taking her husband, though before long, they are both up to their necks in culture, clothes and croissants. Paris ignites their relationship like never before, but the reality of returning home always looms large.

Join Al and Bet in this hilarious romantic adventure, Olivier-nominated for Comedy of the Year when it premiered and featuring John Godber’s unique brand of observational comedy.

With star performances from Shobna Gulati (Coronation Street, Dinnerladies) and Joe McGann (Calendar Girls, Upper Hand, The Hanging Gale) April in Paris will make your heart melt.

“The play makes heavy demands on two actors and they meet them very capably as they create the drunken experience of the ferry, the dizzying heights of the Eiffel Tower and the wonder of Notre Dame, all quirkily realised in Pip Leckenby’s versatile and colourful set.” ****
