Reviews of Charley’s Aunt

GP-W in the Fine Times Recorder wrote that:

The fun is fast moving and hilarious, and only gets more so when the REAL Donna Lucia arrives, with another heiress in tow … and she’s the beloved of Fanny Babberly.

Barry Matthews-Keel’s clever screens bring undergraduate chambers, college garden and Spettigue’s mansion to life. There are some fine performances, notably from Fraser Adams as Jack, Emma Way as Donna Lucia, Brian Waddington as the infatuated Spettigue, Fabia Alexander as the charming Kitty and, in the title role, Kris Hamilton, relishing every moment of personating auntie.

There are a few problems, like serving chunky sandwiches on napkins for “luncheon” and some very peculiar pronunciations. But by the time you read this most of the glitches will be ironed out, creating another memorable Studio Theatre show, and one which is clearly delighting the almost sold out audiences.
