Charley’s Aunt to Theatre Royal Bath

Charley’s Aunt will proceed to Theatre Royal Bath, for just one week, following its season at the Menier Chocolate Factory.

It’s Oxford, in the early 1890s. Lovestruck undergraduates Jack and Charley are planning to invite their girlfriends, Kitty and Amy to lunch. The imminent arrival of Charley’s wealthy aunt, Donna Lucia from Brazil (where the nuts come from), provides the boys with the perfect chaperone. But when Donna is delayed, scuppering their romantic plans, Jack blackmails fellow student, Lord Fancourt Babberley, into impersonating Charley’s Aunt. When Charley’s REAL aunt unexpectedly appears the uproar begins…

Brandon Thomas’s comedy, with its side-splitting mix of chases, scenes of mistaken identity, conversations at crossed purposes and wildly improbable coincidences, is one of the most entertaining farces of all time. When Charley’s Aunt opened in 1892 it broke all box office records and it has been a perennial favourite ever since.
