Our Next Production:

Set in Oxford University in 1890s, Jack and Charley are both in love and plan to propose to their respective girlfriends, Kitty and Amy.  They invite the girls over to meet Charley’s millionaire aunt, Donna Lucia d’Alvadorez of Brazil, who is about to visit Charley for the first time. 

Chaperones for single girls were essential in the Victorian era, so when the aunt cancels at the last minute, the boys enlist feckless friend, Fancourt 'Babbs' Babberly, dressed in costume as a woman for an amateur play, to impersonate Charley’s aunt and clear the way for the boys’ marriage proposals. 

However, Babbs, as Charley’s aunt, finds himself dealing with fawning admirers and fortune-driven advances of two would-be suitors.  Then the real Donna Lucia turns up - incognito…..
