The show is presented by theatre company Creative Cow.
Theatre company Creative Cow will be bringing Graham Greene’s Travels With My Aunt to Bromley.
The play tells the story of unlikely hero Henry, who leads a quiet and risk-free life until his eccentric Aunt Augusta persaudes him to travel with her to Brighton, Paris, Istanbul and Paraguay.
Through her he meets pot-smoking hippies, war criminals, men from the CIA and hard core art smugglers.
He puts his predictable life behind him as he finds himself changing beyond recognition.
The production marks the 25th anniversary of Mr Greene’s death.
The storyline mirrors the writer’s own obsession with travelling as well as taking the audience on a tour through his 17 previous novels.
Actor and co-founder of Creative Cow, Katherine Senior, said: “We love the way Travels with my Aunt traces two voyages in parallel – one a physical cross-continental journey by plane, train and boat and the other a mind-blowing, eye-opening journey of self-discovery.
“Henry couldn’t be more different from Greene himself, who was adventurous, risk-loving and unconventional - but can we perhaps see some similarities by the end?
“It’s a great pleasure to be touring this work by one of our favourite authors in this anniversary year.”
Travels With My Aunt will be at the Churchill Theatre from April 14 to 16, with performances at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
Tickets range from £8 to £25.
