A record-breaking play with love, laughter and period costumes – the classic farce Charley’s Aunt brings some superbly constructed comedy to Stantonbury Campus Theatre on Saturday.
Dashing Oxford undergraduates Jack and Charley are preparing to propose to Amy and Kitty – but it is 1892 and a chaperone is needed or the girls will refuse their lunch invitation.
As luck would have it, Charley’s Aunt is arriving from Brazil and will happily step in.
However, when a telegram declares her trip is delayed the plan changes... and their good friend Lord Fancourt Babberley finds himself putting on a frock to assume her identity.
With a breathtaking chase, musical interlude and an absurd number of marital engagements, prepare for hilarious madness.
Call the box office on MK 324 422.
