Dame Kate Harcourt and David McPhail star in 'Auntie & Me', a deliciously dark comedy.

When an embittered, self-involved bachelor arrives to care for the dying aunt he hasn't seen since childhood, his brief visit stretches to interminable lengths. As her health improves against all odds - and against his hopes - their relationship evolves in unexpected ways. This tour de force offers a wonderful and very funny look at family, growing old and the human condition.

To bring this very funny play to the stage producer Ben McDonald has engaged two of New Zealand’s greatest theatrical veterans; making the 2010 tour of Auntie and Me a very special evening of New Zealand theatrical history.
