This hysterical comedy follows Jack Chesney who loves Kitty Verdun and Charley who loves Miss Amy Spettigue. They invite the ladies to meet Charley’s wealthy aunt from Brazil, “where the nuts come from.” Canceling her visit at the last minute, the millionaire aunt sends the boys into cataclysmic confusion. What do they do now? The problem is solved by drafting their pal into impersonating “Charley’s Aunt”. This beautiful and hysterical production is set in the 1920s, adding a fun modern take to this timeless show! Taken from the website.

In this book, classicist Edwin Wong shows how tragedy imitates reality: heroes, by taking inordinate risks, trigger devastating low-probability, high-consequence outcomes.
