Charley’s Aunt hits stages across region

RoughCast’s touring company is staging their first ever farce, which they have described as one of the funniest and most entertaining of them all, at numerous venues across the region this month.

The play centres on two undergraduates in search of a chaperone for a visit from their girlfriends to whom they hope to propose. When the real aunt is delayed they persuade a fellow student to dress up and impersonate Charley’s millionaire aunt from Brazil (‘where the nuts come from’).

This sets in motion what the company is calling ‘a hilarious tale of young love and deception’.

The performances are: Saturday, March 12, at the New Cut in Halesworth; Sunday, March 13, at Wingfield Barns; Saturday, March 19, at St Michael’s Rooms in Framlingham; Friday, March 25, at Garboldisham Village Hall; and Saturday, March 26, at St Edmund’s Hall in Hoxne.

All performances are at 7.30pm and tickets are £7-9. For info, see www.roughcast.co.uk
