2009 – “What I Did Last Summer” by A. R. Gurney

Posted on: May 8, 2009

Lake Erie, Buffalo, New York. Summer 1945. Charlie, a young teenager, is supposed to be studying Latin for his resit exam in October but it is summer and there is Bonnie, the girl from next door, and Ted, his Canadian friend, to fool around with. Charlie’s father is off to fight the war in the Pacific. His mother Grace is trying to fill her husband’s shoes and failing miserably and Elsie, his older sister, is just a pain in the backside. No one seems to be able to give the young rebel some sense of direction until Charlie’s need to make some pocket money brings him face to face with Anna Trumbull, also known as the “Pig Woman”. An eccentric and an outcast, Anna has some lessons to teach Charlie. Lessons which Grace, his mother, rejected a long time ago…
