FIRST DAY read-through for JEEVES & WOOSTER in PERFECT NONSENSE - lots of fun and great laughs!!
Jonathan Stars in Perfect Nonsense
Join the effervescent, aristocratic fool Bertie Wooster and his dutiful valet, Jeeves, in this critically acclaimed new comic play adapted from the works of P G Wodehouse by the Goodale Brothers and winner of the 2014 Olivier Award for Best Comedy.
When a country house weekend takes a turn for the worse, Bertie Wooster is unwittingly called on to play matchmaker, but also to steal a silver cow creamer from Totleigh Towers. Naturally, the ever dependable Jeeves is there to prevent Bertie from making a fool of himself in front of a cast of Wodehouse’s finest characters.
Enjoy an evening of raucous comedy in the company of Gussie Fink-Nottle, Madeline Bassett, Sir Watkin Bassett, Dahlia Travers, Roderick Spode and Constable Oates!
