Travels with My Aunt – review
Have you ever really seen a man with a glint in his eye? Portraying the title character in this four-actor genteel romp of a play, which opened Thursday night on Theater Row under the direction of Jonathan Silverstein, Mr. But more important, for our purposes, is the sense of possibilities that lurk within the four unexceptional-looking men in business suits, lined up like duckpins on the stage as the show begins and indistinguishable from one another at first glance. They are, in addition to Mr. Its title character might be a septuagenarian, but she is also a free-living, free-loving hedonist who introduces her timid nephew to all sorts of illicit pleasures. Aunt Augusta is, in other words, an Auntie Mame transported from the s to the s and restyled for the more shadowy environs known as Greeneland.
All four are dressed alike in navy blue pinstripes complete with a vest and a derby hat. Remember, each also moves swiftly and effectively from Henry Pulling to other characters with an instant gesture and a tone inflection. Acting skills are put to the test here with terrific results. The story begins with Henry, the 55 year old reserved nerdy banker, attending his mothers funeral in His Aunt Augusta, who he has not seen in decades, appears at the funeral. She has mysterious information about his past. Aunt Augusta is eccentric, outrageous, commanding, and enticing.
The novel follows the travels of Henry Pulling, a retired bank manager, and his eccentric Aunt Augusta as they find their way across Europe, and eventually even further afield. Aunt Augusta pulls Henry away from his quiet suburban existence into a world of adventure, crime and the highly unconventional details of her past. The novel begins when Henry Pulling, a conventional and uncharming bank manager who has taken early retirement, meets his septuagenarian Aunt Augusta for the first time in over fifty years at his mother's funeral. Despite having little in common, they form a bond. On their first meeting, Augusta tells Henry that his mother was not truly his mother and we learn that Henry's father has been dead for more than 40 years.
