Falkirk-based Tryst Theatre’s hilarious new comedy is heading for Alloa on December 6 for four nights.

Described by one critic as “a high-energy theatrical joyride”, Tryst’s “Travels with my Aunt” tells the story of retired bank manager Henry Pulling and his exciting adventures with his eccentric Aunt Augusta, played by Carol Clark.

Henry loves his dull English home life and his dahlias – but Aunt Augusta appears for the first time in fifty years to drag him off into an exotic world of international intrigue, travel, crime and romance.

Four actors – Jim Allan, Alan Clark, Brian Paterson and Brian Tripney – all play Henry plus 25 other larger-than-life characters, including a dog, in this frantic comedy.

Based on Graham Greene’s novel, it was adapted for the stage by former Citizens’ Theatre Director Giles Havergal and became a West End hit as well as a film, starring Maggie Smith.

“Travels with my Aunt” is at Alloa’s Coach House Theatre on December 6, 7, 8 and 9 at 7.30pm. Tickets, £10, are available at www.ticketsource.co.uk/trysttheatre or www.trysttheatre.org.uk
