Oxford undergrads Jack Chesney and Charley Wykeham have found themselves helplessly in love with Kitty Verdun and Miss Amy Spettigue. However, it isn’t proper for young men to meet their loves without a chaperone, so they invite the ladies to meet Charley’s wealthy aunt from Brazil, “where the nuts come from”. Cancelling her visit at the last minute, the millionaire aunt sends the boys into cataclysmic confusion. What do they do now? The problem is solved by drafting their feckless friend, Fancourt Babberly, into a black satin skirt, bloomers, and wig. As “Charley’s Aunt”, this charming frump is introduced to the ladies, to Jack’s father, and to Stephen Spettigue, Amy’s guardian. When the real aunt turns up, classic comic confusion ensues!
Tickets are $22 for adults, and $11 for students (fees included). February 13 is Half Price Preview Thursday. For tickets go to TredAvonPlayers.com or call 410-226-0061.
