Photo Flash: Fells Point Corner Theatre Presents CHARLEY'S AUNT
With an original, record-breaking run of 1,466 performances in 4 years at the Theatre Royal in London, 1892, Charley's Aunt has enjoyed several revivals, translations, and film adaptations, and has charmed audiences for over a century. Two young men, Jack and Charley, scheme to catch the admiration of two young ladies by inviting them to meet Charley's worldly and wealthy aunt for dinner. When, at the last minute, Charley's aunt must cancel her visit, leaving the girls without a chaperone, Jack and Charley quickly convince their friend, Fancourt Babberley, to don a wig, a skirt, and a feminine air. All seems to be solved, until the real aunt turns up, and hilarity ensues. A classic farce for the whole family!
