Charley’s Aunt will be presented by Creative Cow Theatre Company at the Pomegranate Theatre from May 9-11, 2013.

Brandon Thomas’s much loved play is set in 1892, as dashing Oxford undergraduates, Jack and Charley, prepare to propose to Amy and Kitty. However, a chaperone is needed or the girls will refuse their lunch invitation.

As luck would have it, Charley’s Aunt is arriving from Brazil (where the nuts come from) and will happily serve the purpose - until, that is, a telegram declares that her trip is delayed. With their plans in disarray, the students hit upon the idea that Lord Fancourt Babberley, their good friend, should assume her identity.

But things are never that simple and madness ensues when Charley’s real aunt from Brazil finally arrives.

Performances at the Pomegranate are at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 3pm. Tickets £15 with concessions available. Call 01246 345222 or www.chesterfieldtheatres.co.uk.

We have a pair of tickets up for grabs for the May 9 show. Email your name, address and phone number, stating Aunt in the subject box, to: gay.bolton@derbyshiretimes.co.uk. Entries close on Tuesday, May 7.
