Jeeves & Wooster in Perfect Nonsense

  • Show Information

Up Close Theatre bring the amazingly funny and clever adaptation of Jeeves & Wooster in Perfect Nonsense to the Exeter Northcott Theatre for one night only, as they tour it around Devon.

An inventive, fast-paced comedy featuring P.G. Wodehouse’s iconic double act.

Winner of the 2014 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.

When a country house weekend takes a turn for the worse, Bertie Wooster is unwittingly called on to play matchmaker – reconciling the affections of his host’s drippy daughter Madeline Bassett with his newt-fancying acquaintance Gussie Fink-Nottle. If Bertie, ably assisted by the ever-dependable Jeeves, can’t pull off the wedding of the season he’ll be forced to abandon his cherished bachelor status and marry the ghastly girl himself!

Will Bertie get caught with the Policeman’s helmet again? Will Aunt Dahlia get her way and lead Bertie into trouble? How often will Jeeves save the day? And who is Seppings?

Based on P.G. Wodehouse’s delightfully bonkers stories, the Goodale Brothers’ dramatisation premiered at the Duke of York’s Theatre, West End.

Written for a cast of three, who play multiple roles, this adaptation will keep you laughing and breathless all at once as the cast of 3 play 14 characters and there is also a stuffed dog!
