Artistic Director Michael Halberstam and Executive Director Kathryn Lipuma announce a one-week extension of Travels With My Aunt by Graham Greene, adapted for the stage by Giles Havergal, directed by Associate Artistic Director Stuart Carden. The production, originally slated to run through March 27, 2011, will play through April 10, 2011, at Writers’ Theatre, 664 Vernon Avenue in Glencoe.
Henry Pulling, a mild-mannered retired banker, leads a quiet life tending his beloved dahlias and never straying too far from his Southwood, England home. But when his eccentric and outrageous Aunt Augusta suddenly appears in his life with mysterious information about his past, Henry is drawn from the safety of his flower beds into an exotic international adventure. Henry, Aunt Augusta and more than 25 characters are brilliantly and inventively portrayed by just four actors who switch identities, nationalities, ages and genders in this exciting theatrical escapade. Adapted from the celebrated novel by Graham Green, Travels With My Aunt takes you on an irreverent, often hilarious and absolutely unforgettable journey.
