Charley’s Aunt

Posted on

I was asked to create a poster and brochure advert for the comedic play, Charley’s Aunt. The trick was to create something that was mostly masculine, since in the play Charley dresses up as his aunt without in any way being a drag act – he basically just puts on a dress and a head scarf. While the first example below errs on the masculine side, the play is set in the Victorian era, which is why I created the cameo effect poster.

The decision was for an amalgamation of the two.
