Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Charley's Aunt

Two students, Charley Wyckham (Hugh Williams) and Jack Chesney (Rodney McLennan), are in love with two young ladies, Amy and Kitty. They are Mr. Spettigue (Halliwell Hobbes), a very strict guardian who won't let them see the young men. Charley and Jack find a solution: they talk their friend Babbs (Charles Ruggles) into posing as Charley's Aunt Donna Lucia from Brazil who would serve as a chaperone for their visits.

Babbs turns out to be very convincing in the role of a middle-aged woman – too convincing, in fact: both the girls guardian and Jack's father Sir Francis take an interest in “Donna Lucia” and begin courting her.
