Winner of the 2014 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Perfect Nonsense is based on P.G. Wodehouse’s 1938 Novel “The Code of the Woosters”.
Bertie Wooster has hired out a theatre for his one man show but overlooked some of the challenges of presenting the many characters of his story on stage all at once. Luckily Jeeves is on hand to save the day. Add to the stage one enthusiastic maid with a penchant for impersonation, a mountain of costumes and a miraculously constructed set and everything is in place for a bally good show! Fast-paced, madcap and seriously funny, PG Wodehouse’s much-loved characters come to life in a riot of laughter, silliness and theatrical invention. A spiffing start to our 2019 season!
This show will also be performed at Hever Castle Festival Theatre on 31st of May and 1st of June.
