Charley's Aunt (Fall 2005)

Program

Just before the school term ends, Oxford students Jack Chesney and Charley Wykeham invite the two young ladies they are in love with to visit them with the intention of proposing marriage. Everything will be proper since Charley's aunt, whom he has never met, is coming for a visit and will serve as a chaperone.

When the aunt telegraphs she will be delayed, the boys are desperate to find a substitute and finally persuade a fellow classmate, Fancourt Babberly, to impersonate the aunt. When Jack's father and Stephen Spettigue, the girl's guardian, enter into the plot, the confusion rises to a hilarious climax before everything finally comes to a happy resolution.
