Not a musical, but March is a light month and when I saw the cast, I had to put it on our list (Stephen Hair is well-known to Calgary audiences as Scrooge in Theatre Calgary's annual production of A Christmas Carol, and Chris Hunt plays, well, everyone, everywhere!). More comedy than mystery. Show runs March 8 to April 6.
TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT
By Graham Greene
Adapted by Giles Havergal
Directed by Simon Mallett
"More crime caper than traditional mystery, described by Graham Greene as 'the only book I have written just for the fun of it'. Havergal's brilliant adaptation translates this fun story into a highly theatrical adventure." - Craig Hall, Artistic Director
Henry Pulling leads a quiet life tending his beloved dahlias and never straying too far from his home. But when his eccentric and outrageous Aunt Augusta suddenly appears with mysterious information about his past, Henry is drawn into a life of crime and a series of absurd adventures. Adapted from the celebrated novel by Graham Green, Travels With My Aunt takes you on an irreverent, often hilarious and absolutely unforgettable journey.
