Have you met Charley’s Aunt?

Worcester Editorial 12th Jul, 2017   0

WORCESTER Repertory Company is inviting residents to its must-see summer performance about young love and deception.

Taking place in the historic grounds of The Commandery every day (expect Mondays) until Sunday, July 23, Worcester Repertory Company’s hilarious performance of Brandon Thomas’s rip-roaring farce, Charley’s Aunt, will bring a smile to all faces.

Directed by Chris Jaeger, the play tells the tale of Lord Fancourt Babberley, an undergraduate whose friends Jack and Charley persuade him to impersonate the latter’s aunt.

The play, which was first performed at the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds, in 1892, went onto break all historic records for plays of any kind, with an original London run of 1,466 performances.

It was also a success on Broadway and toured internationally, and has been adapted for films and musicals.

So pack a picnic, bring a bottle, and prepare to belly laugh your way through a summer evening’s entertainment like no other, all in the glorious surroundings of The Commandery gardens.

The event starts at 7.30pm on Tuesdays to Saturdays and 3pm on Sundays.

Tickets cost £16 for weekday and Saturday performances and £12.50 for Sunday performances.
