Keen Theatre Company presents an adaptation of Graham Greene's comic novel about a mild-mannered retired banker and his eccentric aunt, in which four actors play over 25 characters. More…
Henry Pulling leads a quiet life and never strays too far from his home in Southwood, England. But when his outrageous Aunt Augusta suddenly appears in his life with mysterious information about his past, Henry is drawn into a series of exotic international adventures. Henry, Aunt Augusta and over 25 of the characters they meet along the way are inventively portrayed by just four actors who switch identities, nationalities, ages and genders in this theatrical escapade.
See it if you enjoy shows that are cleverly constructed. This one has 20+ characters played by 4 actors, with 1 of the characters played by all 4.
Don't see it if you require more than cleverness. The story is intelligently told, with some suspense, but the beauty of this show is in how it is told.
