"a joyous production" THE STAGE

Charley's Aunt

"Fizzing like champagne this elegant and entertaining production perfectly captures the period’s style... this is a joyous production of gentle uncomplicated and timeless fun"  THE STAGE

5*s  WHATSONSTAGE

It is 1892 and dashing Oxford undergraduates, Jack and Charley are preparing to propose to Amy and Kitty, but a chaperone is needed or the girls will refuse their lunch invitation.  As luck would have it, Charley’s Aunt is arriving from Brazil (where the nuts come from) and will happily serve the purpose. However, a telegram declares that her trip is delayed so their plans are in disarray until they hit upon the idea that Lord Fancourt Babberley, their good friend, should put on a frock and assume her identity.

But, madness ensues when Charley’s real aunt from Brazil (where the nuts come from) finally arrives. All is well in the end after a breathtaking chase, a musical interlude and an absurd number of marital engagements.

Creative Cow, the company who brought you The Rivals last year, will take on this hilarious farce and wrestle it to the floor in a flurry of Victorian vim and verve.
