Travels With My Aunt

Citizens Theatre

Giles Havergal’s stage adaptation of Graham Greene’s classic comedy of life on the road with retired bank manager and dahlia enthusiast Henry Pulling and his long-lost Aunt Augusta.

When Henry first meets Augusta at his mother’s funeral, he has no idea of the whirlwind of exotic adventures that lie ahead of him. Coaxed into a life on the road, Henry’s new found travels take him across the world smuggling gold and falling in with drug dealers along the way as he unravels the unconventional details of his aunt’s past.

Hilarious, witty and great fun, Giles Havergal’s celebrated stage adaptation of Graham Greene’s novel challenges a cast of four to bring to life more than 20 characters through the course of the play. First performed at the Citizens Theatre in 1989, the play went on to be a West End hit winning an Olivier Award and is now staged around the world.

Director Phillip Breen returns to the Citizens Theatre having previously directed True West, A Day in the Death of Joe Egg and The Caretaker.
