Pensioners in Paradis

by: Olga Swan

Humour is a joyous thing. It enables us to recognise the ridiculous, and to empathise with life’s disasters.

Take the lives of a self-deprecating couple from England, steeped in life’s troubles, and whisk them across the Channel. Laugh with them as they encounter hilarious situations en France – from troublesome workmen, the infamous bureaucracy, and even sex à la française!

Take notes on this transition from English doom and gloom to la belle vie française, and follow the exploits of this oh-so-recognisable English couple.

What could possibly go wrong?
