CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'.

Bet and Al lead a hum-drum, if not claustrophobic, life with the friction in their relationship similar to the banter that goes on between all partners, until Bet wins a short holiday for two in Paris. It's their first time abroad, and they find themselves dealing with everyday French situations in an all too recognisably English way. But the break has profound effects on the way they look at the world around them; their horizons have opened up immeasurably, and once they return home can they settle back so easily into the life they once led? Contains adult language.Performers Shobna Gulati, Joe McGann.

M Gibson (05Oct14): Fantastic performance on Tuesday 30 September 2014 at which the understudy for Joe McGann had to take over due to unforeseen circumstances. Shobna Gulati was wonderful as usual and so was the actor who 'stepped up' to play 'Al' on that night (Robert Ashcroft). His delivery and comic timing were superb and so was the audience reaction to him. Robert Ashcroft deserves acclaim as does the whole of Tuesday night's performance. It was a superb performance and an extremely appreciative audience.
