This British farce consists of six men and four women.
Jack is in love with Kitty and Charley is in love with Amy. When Charley receives a telegram from his aunt, a wealthy widow from Brazil whom he has never met, stating that she will be arriving for lunch, Jack and Charley immediately arrange a luncheon for their
young ladies with Charley’s aunt as chaperone. But, Charley receives another telegram stating his aunt is
delayed and will not be arriving for a few days. Disappointed but not wanting to cancel the lunch date,
Jack and Charley talk their friend Babbs, who has taken on his first acting role as an elderly lady,
into posing as “Charley’s Aunt”….just for the luncheon. However, Jack’s father shows up as well as
Mr. Spettigue, Amy’s uncle and Kitty’s guardian; and the gentlemen are both introduced to “Charley’s Aunt”. Naturally, comic confusion results when the real aunt shows up.
This turn-of-the-century British farce is full of fun, impersonations and a bit of mayhem.
