Set in Oxford England in 1892, this world famous farce has moved millions to tears of laughter. Jack Chesney loves Kitty Verdun and Charley loves Amy Spettigue. They invite the ladies to meet Charley's wealthy aunt from Brazil. But alas, the millionaire aunt sends word that she will have to defer her visit for a few days. What is to be done? The dear young things must not be compromised...NO...NEVER! But neither will the youths give up the opportunity of declaring their love.
The problem is solved by forcing another Oxford undergraduate into a black dress and old fashioned cap and wig. As Charley's Aunt, this old frump is introduced to the sweethearts, to Jack's father and to Stephen Spettigue, Amy Spettigue's guardian. Then the real aunt turns up! Comic confusion is what results!
Come for an evening of side-splitting laughter! This will be a performance not soon to be forgotten!
