It’s here! Jeeves and Wooster plays in Harrogate Theatre this week with a top-notch cast straight from the West End.

Adapted from the classic works of P.G. Wodehouse by The Goodale Brothers, Jeeves & Wooster in Perfect Nonsense is directed by award-winner Sean Foley and features a top trio, indeed.

Running from Monday, February 23 to Saturday, February 28the big name stars are Robert Webb (Peep Show, That Mitchell and Webb Look). Jason Thorpe (Fast & Furious 6, The Armstrong and Miller Show) and Christopher Ryan (The Young Ones).

A Best Comedy Winner at The Olivier Awards, this hilarious production layers joke on joke in a delightful evening of theatrical absurdity featuring P.G. Wodehouse’s iconic double act.

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 amid a cast of Wodehouse’s finest characters including Gussie Fink-Nottle, Madeleine Bassett, Sir Watkin Bassett and Constable Oates.
