A Farce in Three Acts, written by Brandon Thomas
Two young Oxford University ungraduates - Jack Chesney and Charles “Charley” Wykeham are in love with Kitty Verdun and Miss Amy Spettigue. With intention to profess their love, they invite the ladies of their affections to meet Charley's wealthy aunt from Brazil, Donna Lucia d’Alvadorez. Unfortunately, Donna Lucia cancels her visit at the last minute, and the millionaire aunt sends the boys into cataclysmic confusion. What do they do now? Could the problem be solved by drafting Fancourt Babberley - their feckless pal from university into a black satin skirt, bloomers and wig and pose as the millionaire aunt? Perhaps… though when Babberley as "Charley's Aunt," the charming frump is introduced to the ladies and Donna Lucia shows up last minute - classic comedic confusion ensues!
