TIME TO VISIT APRILINPARIS
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.”
