Alas, April
Brisbane French Theatre is excited to present its first play of the 2018 season and its first 100% original production: “Alas, April”. The side-splitting romantic comedy will transport you into the Paris Metro where you will witness strangers crossing paths and helping each other out as they navigate the whims of love and life… as well as the customary strikes and delays often affecting France’s public transports.
“Alas, April”, an original new play written by Thomas E. Smith, blends hilarious fast-paced dialogues, reflective moments, and a good dose of goofiness, all to the tune of French classics and original tracks.
Come join us for another fabulous live French theatre experience right here in Brisbane, and you’ll finish the night with a smile on your face, a French tune in your head, and a trip to Paris on your bucket list. A bientot!

“Alas, April” is performed in French, with English subtitles projected above the stage on a wide screen.

The play is recommended for an audience 15+. It contains mature themes, coarse language and sexual references that may offend some audience members.

Directed by Isabelle Johnson
