LOVE won’t necessarily tear you apart, but it will certainly inflict some serious bruising.
Set in Bolton, All In Good Time is a tender-hearted contemporary comedy about two newlyweds who discover the honeymoon period ends much quicker than anticipated.
Adapted from the acclaimed stage production Rafta, Rafta by Ayub Khan-Din, itself based on a 1965 play by Bill Naughton, Nigel Cole’s follow-up to Made In Dagenham emphasises the importance of honesty and respect between the generations in multi-cultural Britain.
Khan-Din’s script retains the humour, from one Indian father explaining why the vicar ushered out wedding guests to make way for the Harvest festival (“Jesus doesn’t eat curry”) to some tart one-liners about the traditions of God-fearing Asian families.
