Off Centre Theatre will be presenting an amateur production of April in Paris, starring Jim Newcomb and Anne MacFarlane, at Whitchurch and Ganarew Memorial Hall on Friday, September 8 at 7.30pm.

The John Godber comedy is about Bet and Al, who lead a quiet, humdrum life until Bet wins a ‘Romantic Breaks’ competition in a magazine. The prize is a holiday in Paris and it represents their first experience abroad and has a profound effect on the way they look at their life and the world. They sort out French cuisine, wrestle with their phrasebook, and fend off would-be muggers on the Metro.

In 1997 Anne MacFarlane and Jim Newcomb performed this play to rave reviews. Twenty years later, to celebrate the longevity of Monmouth’s premier drama group, they are reprising the roles of Bet and Al in this hilarious depiction of the English abroad. To book, call 01600 890640 or tickets are available from Woods of Whitchurch.
