Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Stage -

WIN­NING a hol­i­day to the most ro­man­tic city in the world will ei­ther make or break the pas­sion­less pair at the heart of Har­bour The­atre’s new show April in Paris.

Di­rec­tor Tina Barker said there was a time­less qual­ity to the 1994 Olivier Com­edy of the Yearnom­i­nated play.

“It deals with the is­sues that peo­ple may have to face from time to time such as long term un­em­ploy­ment, a mar­riage stuck in a rut and money short­ages,” Barker said.

Ac­tress Ni­cola Bond said she was de­lighted to play a part in another John God­ber play, after ap­pear­ing in Lucky Sods a few years ago.

“Bet has that typ­i­cal North English tough­ness and re­fuses to take their cur­rent sit­u­a­tion ly­ing down,” Bond said.

“En­ter­ing com­pe­ti­tions is her way of es­cap­ing the day to day drudgery. Not re­ally ex­pect­ing to win any­thing gives her a sense of an­tic­i­pa­tion which is miss­ing from her life.”

Alan Mor­ris, who will play Bet’s unin­spired hus­band Al, said:

“I love per­form­ing com­edy with a mes­sage and this play de­liv­ers it in droves.”
