Charley’s Aunt

Jack Chesney and his college friend Charley Wykeham are anxious to propose to their girls, Kitty Verdun and Amy Spettigue respectively. Knowing that the girls will leave for Scotland the next day Jack and Charley invite them to dine, to be accompanied by a chaperone, Donna Lucia D’Alvadorez. Donna Lucia is a widow from Brazil, “where the nuts come from,” and although she is Charley’s aunt, this will be their first meeting. The boys also invite their friend Lord Fancourt Babberly (“Babbs”) to dine with them in order to distract Charley’s Aunt so that Jack and Charley can propose to their girls. However, they are soon informed that Donna Lucia will not be arriving for a few more days. Knowing that the girls will not stay without a chaperone, Jack and Charley pressure Babbs into impersonating Charley’s aunt.

The fake aunt Babbs charms Jack’s father, Sir Francis Chesney, as well as Kitty and Amy’s (unexpected) guardian, Stephen Spettigue. They begin pining for “Donna Lucia’s” affection, wanting her only for her money. The farce escalates when the real Donna Lucia arrives and, recognizing what is going on, assumes a different name. She is accompanied by a young girl, Ela, who happens to be Babbs’ long lost love. Holly will be performing as the real aunt on January 16th, 18th and 22nd at 7:30 PM and on the 20th at 2:00 PM.
