See 'Charley's Aunt' in the Hill Country

The British farce Charley’s Aunt is currently onstage at Wimberley Playhouse. Originally performed in Suffolk, England in 1892, the play is a classic comedy, with mistaken identities, men in drag, and the sort of fast-paced action you expect from a good farce. 

By far the most enduring work by playwright Brandon Thomas, Charley's Aunt quickly became a classic, enjoying countless productions worldwide in the 122 since its birth. 

In addition to its many professional stagings, Charley's Aunt also became a perennial favorite of high school theater, where a condensed version is often performed as part of UIL one-act play competitions. In fact, two of this production's male leads had previously appeared in the play during their high school years.
