A hilarious farce with inventive theatricality, the play was co-written by brothers David and Robert Goodale based upon characters created by British author P.G. Wodehouse. Wodehouse, a prolific writer who was considered to be of one of the most widely-read humorists of the 20th century, often mixed humor with social commentary. Among his many creations – including Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, and Uncle Fred and Mr. Mulliner – Jeeves and Wooster are two of his most beloved characters.
Inspired in part by Wodehouse’s 1938 novel The Code of the Woosters, the Goodale Brothers’ Jeeves & Wooster in “Perfect Nonsense” is a fast-paced, slapstick comedy which cleverly skewers the Edwardian Upper Class. Everything goes awry when Bertie Wooster, a wealthy British gentleman with a penchant for telling stories, decides to stage a one-man show on London’s West End. Things go from bad to worse when Wooster’s loyal valet, Jeeves, valiantly steps in to help save the day.
- Previews begin at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 21
- Opening Night: 8 p.m., Friday, March 29
- Closes: 8 p.m., Saturday, April 20
