‘Auntie & Me’, by Morris Panych, is a delightful and mordant black comedy about life, loss and loneliness. When Kemp receives a letter from an aunt who claims she is “old and dying”, he travels across the country to see her off. But when she insists on staying alive he decides to see her off himself…
In this darkly funny two hander Sean Mason (ComedySportz UK, New Dawn Fades, Porridge) plays Kemp, the put upon nephew waiting for his Aunt to die. “Kemp is this sort of Hancock-esque lost figure,” says Sean. “I was excited by the script’s mix of sadness and laughter.”
Last seen on the UK stage as a West End production starring Alan Davies, this revival of Canadian writer Morris Panych’s ‘Auntie & Me’ promises wit and warmth with a deliciously dark edge.
Auntie & Me is a whip-smart comedy drama that explores loneliness and connection with humour and emotion. Part of the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival.
