Today’s the day. If Charley and Jack don’t tell Amy and Kitty how they feel about them, the college term will finish and they may never see them again. But their plan to invite the young ladies for lunch depends on the presence of Charley’s visiting Brazilian aunt. When she lets them down at the last moment, all hope seems to have gone. Except that their friend, Fancourt Babberley, happens to be on his way to a fancy-dress party … hilarity ensues in this laugh-out-loud comedy.
