The classic comedy of mistaken identity, young love, old love, angry uncles, and a beautiful, exotic aunt.

In Victorian Oxford, Charley and Jack pressure fellow student Fancourt to pose as Charley's aunt Donna Lucia from Brazil ‘where the nuts come from'. Their purpose? To have a chaperone for their amorous visits to Amy and Kitty, niece and ward of Stephen Spettigue. It gets complicated when Fancourt (as Charley's aunt Donna Lucia) becomes the love object of both old Spettigue and Jack's father Sir Francis Chesney... LynchPin presents a rehearsed reading of this farce by Brandon Thomas, first performed in 1892. It ran in London for a world-record-breaking 1466 performances, followed by numerous revivals, film and musical adaptations.

Directed by Kate Napier and read by professional actors.

Online booking subject to a 5% booking fee per ticket (capped at £5 per transaction)
