Jeeves & Wooster in Perfect Nonsense

This adorable production layers joy on joy, joke on joke, in a delightful evening of theatrical absurdity featuring P.G Wodehouse’s iconic double act. Read more …

When a perfectly delightful trip to the countryside takes a turn for the worse, Bertie is called on to play matchmaker and steal a cow creamer from Totleigh Towers. Of course, 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, Aunt Dahlia, Roderick Spode and Constable Oates!

The critical consensus

Jeeves and Wooster impressively manages to resolve some but not all of the technical problems involved in bringing a much-loved classic to the stage and whilst it is not perfect it is far from being nonsense.

This is a delightful reminder of how funny good old Jeeves and Wooster are – it may be time to dust of the novels for a well-deserved re-visit over the cold winter months.

****(*)Lauren Humphreys, The Public Reviews, 24/11/2014

The show emerges as an irresistibly jolly celebration both of Wodehouse himself, and of the power of theatre, celebrated in a glorious final soft-shoe shuffle that has the audience roaring its approval.

***(*)(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 29/11/2014

It is far from perfect, but it is perfectly entertaining.

***(*)(*)Michael Cox, Across the Arts, 27/11/2014

It is this lack of realism that helps give the production a timeless feel. In the end it is as much about the magic, artifice and joy of theatre as it is about the source; either way, it is terrific fun.

****(*)Hugh Simpson, All Edinburgh Theatre, 12/05/2015

The play-within-a-play idea gives the whole enterprise a sense of real zip. Or as Bertie would say, it’s spiffing.

***(*)(*)Ken Wilson, TVBomb, 12/05/2015

This is without doubt an absolutely spiffing night out.
