By  John Godber
Directed by Ian Houghton

April in Paris is a delicately wrought comedy filled with raucous indelicate dialogue. Al and Bet are a married couple, living a monochrome life. Left half-broke by Al’s continuing unemployment, the couple bicker about everything from having no hot water, to Al’s uninspired black-and-white paintings to Bet’s obsession with magazine competitions.

When Bet finally wins one – the prize being a trip for two to Paris – there is the glimmer of romantic hope for a complete reversal of fortunes.Instead, it is in the slow gains, the addition of colour and the learning to be nice to one another again that gives this play its surprising, uplifting denouement.
