This world famous farce has moved millions to tears of laugh-ter. Jack Chesney loves Kitty Verdun and Charles loves Miss Spet-tigue. They invite the ladies to meet Charley’s wealthy aunt from Brazil. But, alas, the millionaire aunt sends word that she will have to defer her visit for a few days. What is to be done? The dear young things must not be compromised no, never! But neither will the youths will give up the opportunity of declaring their love. The problem is solved by forcing another undergraduate into a black satin skirt, a lace fichu, a pair of mitts, an old fashioned cap and wig. As Charley’s Aunt, this frump is introduced to the sweethearts, to Jack’s father and to Stephen Spettigue, Miss Spettigue’s guardian. Then the real aunt turns up. In the comic confusion which results in young Lord Babberley, posing as the aunt, tricks Stephen Spettigue into agreeing to the marriage of his ward to Charley, the real aunt marries Jack’s father, Jack gets Miss Verdun, and “Charley’s Aunt” regains the fortune he lost at gambling and the girl he loves. In its many stages and motion picture revivals, this play has reached a wide and eager audience.
