Just in time for the holiday season, when airports and highways are filled with people en route to visit family, comes “Travels with My Aunt.” This black comedy has been adapted from Graham Greene’s novel of the same name by Giles Havergal at the Writers’ Theatre.

Directed by Stuart Carden, the show features four actors—LaShawn Banks, Sean Fortunato, John Hoogenakker and Jeremy Sher—who portay the 25 plus characters in the play.

Dueling Critics Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman reviewed the production, which runs at the Writers’ Theatre through March 27.
