Charley's Aunt : Creative Cow Theatre Company
It is 1892 and dashing Oxford undergraduates, Jack and Charley are preparing to propose to Amy and Kitty, but a chaperone is needed or the girls will refuse their lunch invitation.
As luck would have it, Charley’s Aunt is arriving from Brazil (where the nuts come from) and will happily serve the purpose.
However, a telegram declares that her trip is delayed so their plans are in disarray until they hit upon the idea that Lord Fancourt Babberley, their good friend, should put on a frock and assume her identity.
But, madness ensues when Charley’s real aunt from Brazil (where the nuts come from) finally arrives. All is well in the end after a breathtaking chase, a musical interlude and an absurd number of marital engagement.
Creative Cow is a touring repertory theatre company. The aim is to present to wide and diverse audiences the very best in classic and contemporary playwriting with imaginative and accomplished performances. The atmosphere is one of intimacy and informality within a professional framework.
The productions and sets are clever and innovative. Performances are designed to be simple, direct and entertaining and easily transportable to theatres, pubs and private houses. The company takes pride in touring the same show to 900 seat theatres and 40 seat art galleries.
'The Rivals is not only tackled, but wrestled to the floor in a flurry of ruffled wigs, corsets and impeccable comic timing' (Whats on Stage)
'stylish, smart, farce-like fun and very cheering' (Donald Hutera, freelance writer for The Times etc)
'This is a focused, subtle, resourceful and coherent production that shows intelligence and integrity throughout' (Plays International Magazine).
