Igor in role: Babberly
Situation (and conversation) comedy
A playful comedy (and one of the best-written comedies in the history of theatre), about two Oxford students, Charley and Jack, who are getting ready to invite the loves of their lives on a date. As they are shy, they are hoping to achieve their goal by arranging it as a meeting with Charley’s aunt. A malicious coincidence, together with their debts - typical companions of people’s student years in every country and time, causes a somewhat spoilt student, Babberley, to appear in the role of Charley’s aunt.
Many surprising situations and excellent humour, which derive from the best English traditions, are a reliable guarantee of quality entertainment for the audience, with pleasant tones of nostalgia. Gustav Skála was commissioned to direct this piece – let’s remember his and our ´immortal´ ‘Flea in her Ear’!
Premiere: 16th of December 2007
