Steven Pacey makes a strong impact as Sir Francis, full of vitality and spark, absolutely the old Indian Colonel and really relishing his lines. “That’s not the way an old soldier makes love” brought the house down.

The Real Chrisparkle

Much more animated is a superb and deadpan Steven Pacey, who does wonders as Chesney’s well-adjusted father. Willing to marry the fake Charley’s Aunt in order to restore the family’s finances, Pacey’s elder Chesney pauses to think about the prospect of consummation, a thought that sends his body into a convulsion of revulsion. It’s the kind of performance that you just wouldn’t get in an amateur dramatics performance.
