West End Productions Presents TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT At N4thWest End Productions Presents TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT At N4th
by BWW News Desk - Jan 7, 2019

West END PRODUCTIONS' 2019 season kicks off on February 22nd with TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT. Four of Albuquerque's favorite actors - Kenneth Ansloan, Tim Crofton, Tim MacAlpine and Harry Zimmerman, under the direction of Cy and Jane Hoffman, play the many characters, including the central figure, sometimes simultaneously! Four middle-aged men, each dressed in a black suit, with a black tie, sporting a black bowler hat and a red carnation in his jacket button-hole, sit facing the audience. It is not the most exciting way to start a theatrical journey, but Scottish playwright Giles Havergal's sly adaptation of Graham Greene's comic novel turns stylistic economy into a stylish statement, as it tells the odyssey of a very dull retired bank manager who reunites with his seventy-five-year-old aunt at his mother's cremation, which leads to a considerable change in his life and much excitement.
