Travels with My Aunt

  • Show Information

Four actors take on over 20 characters in this hilarious mad cap dash around the world with Henry Pulling, a retired suburban bank manager with a penchant for dahlias.

Henry meets his eccentric Aunt Augusta at what he supposes to be his mother’s funeral. She persuades him to abandon his dahlias and travel with her to Brighton, Paris, Istanbul and across the world to Paraguay. Through Aunt Augusta, a veteran of
hotel bedrooms and shady associates, Henry joins a shifty twilight society of pot smoking hippies, war criminals, men from the CIA and hard core art smugglers. To his aunt’s great delight, he finds himself coming alive as he puts his former dull and
predictable life behind him.

Age 12+ Running time: 2hrs 20 mins Post show talk Thu 12th May
