My Giddy Aunt

 

Once more there is a marvellous leading role for someone to portray more than one role. An actress this time and she plays an eccentric, domineering Dowager Duchess and her twin sister, a down-to- earth cockney charlady

The piece is set in India and , although it has all the laughs you’d expect from a Cooney-Chapman comedy, there are twists a-plenty in this spoof of a thriller.
