WITH AN HILARIOUS GODBER PLAY
John Godber’s touching and hilarious classic April in Paris will be stopping off at St George’s Hall, Bradford on Monday 12 & Tuesday 13 July 2021 as part of a national tour.
Directed by Richard Lewis, the play goes right into the heart of one ordinary couple’s life as they go on both the journey of a lifetime and a journey into their relationship. Al, played by Joe Pasquale, and Bet (Sarah Earnshaw) 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.
Joe Pasquale told Leeds Guide, “I have been a huge fan of John Godber’s work for the past 30 years since I first saw Bouncers, so to be given a chance to perform this specially adapted version of one of John’s finest creations is a dream come true. To be able to perform this show with Sarah Earnshaw is a true delight. John has written a masterclass of comedy and pathos, with such a sense of realism, reflecting the way life is in a long relationship”
