A Picture of Autumn, Featuring "Harry Potter" Actor Christian Coulson, Begins Off-Broadway May 23
By Adam Hetrick
Christian Coulson, George Morfogen and Jonathan Hogan star in the Mint Theater Company's American premiere of N.C. Hunter's A Picture of Autumn, which begins May 23 Off-Broadway.
Gus Kaikkonen stages the production that will officially open June 10 at the Mint's home on 43rd Street and continue through July 14. The play premiered in London in 1951.
In addition to Coulson — known for his role as Tom Riddle in the "Harry Potter" films — Morfogen and Hogan, the cast includes Helen Cespedes, Barbara Eda-Young, Katie Firth, Paul Niebanck, Kraig Swartz and Jill Tanner.
According to the Mint, "A Picture of Autumn is a sensitive, intelligent and comic depiction of one family’s attempt to grow old gracefully. Autumn tells the story of Charles and Margaret Denham, living in disarray in the decaying ancestral home with ancient Uncle Harry and senile Nanny. Their son Robert returns to England after several years abroad and finds that both the house and its occupants have faded from past glory. When an opportunity to sell the burdensome property arises, Robert leaps at the chance to help his parents downsize."
A Picture of Autumn has set design by Charles Morgan, costume design by Sam Fleming, lighting design by William Armstrong, sound design by Jane Shaw and prop design by Joshua Yocum.
Post-show EnrichMint events include professor Keri Walsh, professor of English, Fordham University (June 1); Dr. Barbara Z. Perman, author of "No Ordinary Move — Relocating Your Aging Parents" (June 2); and Paula Span, author of "When The Time Comes, Families With Aging Parents Share Their Struggles and Solutions" (June 8).
