April in Paris - UK Tour

Joe Pasquale and Sarah Earnshaw will star as Al and Bet in John Godber’s classic comedy, APRIL IN PARIS, which will tour the country, opening in Wellingborough on 28 January 2021, and will be directed by Richard Lewis. Audiences will be socially distanced. Al and Bet are in a rut. Married for 26 years, their conversations are running dry and life has taken its toll. With his building work sparse and her shifts at the shoe shop getting few and far between there’s little to look forward to, apart from a possible ABBA tribute show in Wakefield and the odd trip to the pub. But Bet has dreams. She longs to walk with the Pharaohs in Egypt, sunbathe on golden beaches and climb Alpine mountains, all fuelled by her love of magazine competitions with holidays as prizes. Finally, her luck changes; she wins a night away for two to Paris in April, via a luxury trip on P&O Ferries out of Hull.
