It's 1890. Jack and Charley wish to propose to Amy and Kitty but the ladies require a chaperone. When Charley's aunt from Brazil sends word she isn't coming, they coerce Lord Fancourt Babberly into impersonating the rich old widow. Then Jack's newly impoverished father arrives along with the girls' greedy guardian and suddenly "Babbs" is the most popular widow in town! And who is the mysterious woman with the pretty young niece?
This classic romantic farce was most recently produced at the Menier Chocolate Factory in 2012 with Mathew Horne and Jane Asher.
