An American in Luton – John Hegley

A tall and unannounced Maine man appears in a seemingly ordinary 1960’s English living room.
He is the high chaperone and bringer of a grandmother who has not seen her office-worker son for decades – her grandchildren, never. His job done, this curious visitor hands the children each a ten-dollar bill, says his goodbyes and is gone – off up the suburban street, into the evening and perhaps a hotel in the town centre on his horse.

A story of family, fantasy, love, loss and an ancient stamp album, with a Caravaggio and a wry dry stone-waller thrown into the mix.
Devised for adults.
Drawings will be provided.

‘Let me tell you what my Pop said to me, Ma’am -‘Depression?.. Get over it! America had to.’

plus booking fee All tickets sold online via TICKET SOURCE, no tickets on the door.
