Auntie Mame

Friday 29th November 2019 - Sunday 1st December 2019


Originally written as a novel, Auntie Mame narrates the life of Patrick Dennis as he grows from a young orphan to an adult, under the care of his Auntie Mame. Eccentric and extravagant, throughout the play Mame lives a life that anyone would dream of, starting off as a rich radical chic, then losing all her money during the great depression, she then marries a wealthy Southern Gentleman and travels the world with him. After his tragic death, she returns to her home in New York City to write a memoir. During her adventures with Patrick she meets a colourful cast of characters, each one stranger than the other. The comedy is heavily conveyed through Mame’s witty humour and energetic personality, with highlights including her stealing the show in professional performance by filing her arms with jangling bracelets and winning a fox hunt by flying off her horse and crashing into a car. The show is family friendly fun for all ages.
