Proud Haddock Presents ...

CHARLEY'S AUNT- A New Version - adapted by Paul Thain from Brandon Thomas

Live on YouTube streaming, 7.30pm, Sunday 11th April 2021 and 24/7 all the following week

The All-star A-list cast includes Karl Queensborough, exchanging his role of Alexander Hamilton in the London production to play shy, love-struck Oxford undergraduate Charley

Charley's Aunt was once the "World's Most Popular Play"

This New Version by Paul Thain retains the essence of the original but re-works it for a modern audience, conflating the original three acts to two and enlivening the stale dialogue to give the much needed pace and energy demanded by a modern audience

It's still set in an Oxford college in 1892 where Charles (Charley) Wykeham uses the imminent arrival of his aunt Donna Lucia as an opportunity to invite two young ladies to his rooms for lunch

But when her visit is postponed and they're without a chaperone, rather than cancel, Charles and Jack persuade their fellow student Lord Fancourt to impersonate the Aunt

Lord Fancourt relishes the opportunity and particularly enjoys being kissed by the girls and sharing their confidences

So much so, he stubbornly refuses to abandon his role

The reading will be streamed live on YouTube on Sunday 11th April, 7.30pm and available to stream Monday 12th – Sunday 18th April.

AND IT'S FREE

Well, not quite ...

We hope when you stop laughing you'll make a Donation to the Equity Charitable Trust, which provides financial support to those in need in the theatre industry
