CHARLEY'S AUNT by Brandon Thomas

Saturday 15th April 2017

Winchester Discovery Centre

7.30pm

Directed by Bill Baggs

Widely regarded as one of the most sensational and entertaining farces of all time.

Jack Chesney and Charley Wykeham, two undergraduates at Oxford, are in love--Jack with Kitty Verdun, ward of Stephen Spettigue the Oxford solicitor, and Charley with Amy Spettigue, the solicitor's niece. However, neither knows quite how to express his love until Jack comes up with a plan: It just so happens that Charley's aunt, a wealthy widow from Brazil ("where the nuts come from") is in town.

But all plans go awry when the aunt, Donna Lucia d' Alvadorez, telegraphs that she won't be arriving for a few more days. Without the aunt as chaperone, Charley and Jack quickly realize the girls won't come to lunch.

Things, of course, only get worse with the arrival of Jack's father and then (unexpectedly) of Spettigue. Both men are charmed by "Donna Lucia" and begin to vie for the rich aunt's hand as Babbs leads them both on a wild chase.

Comic confusion reigns supreme.
