“Travels with my Aunt is a club class ticket to feel-good enjoyment” ***** Daily Telegraph
Retired bank manager Henry Pulling is happy alone with his dahlias until he meets his decidedly bohemian Aunt Augusta who, having rattled the family skeletons, persuades the reluctant Henry to flee to Europe. He finds himself in a luxurious whirl through Paris and Istanbul and on to South America; but alongside the romance and first-class thrills, there’s a lot Henry doesn’t know about his aunt – particularly why she has so many grateful men dotted around the globe.
Travels With My Aunt premiered at the Minerva Theatre, Chichester in 2016 starring Patricia Hodge as Aunt August and Steven Pacey as Henry.
