Enjoy this brand new play featuring PG Wodehouse’s best loved double act, Jeeves and Wooster, on a jolly jaunt to the countryside that takes a rather unforeseen turn for the worse!
From 7th April the loveable duo will be played by Robert Webb (Wooster) and Mark Heap (Jeeves).
Robert Webb is probably best known for ‘Peep Show’ with comedy sparring partner David Mitchell. He was also the winner of the 2009 ‘Let’s Dance’ competition in aid of Comic Relief clad in a truly jaw-dropping leotard strutting his stuff to ‘Flashdance’.
Mark Heap has a comedy CV as long as your arm and then some! In his many different guises he’s been in ‘Spaced’ with Simon Pegg, ‘Green Wing’ with Stephan Mangan, ‘Jam’ with Chris Morris as well as more recent TV shows such as ‘Outnumbered’ and ‘Miranda’. Film credits include young Nicholas Hoult’s school teacher in ‘About A Boy’ and Tim Burton’s ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.
So do you want to hear a bit about what the play is about? Well it is perfect nonsense really! Bertie heads to the country to find his host’s daughter, Madeline Bassett is rather head over heals in love with poor old Gussie Fink-Nottle. But life is never simple and if Bertie, with the help of the ever-dependable Jeeves, can’t bring them together he may well have to marry her himself: what a ghastly thought!
The famous Duke of York’s Theatre on St Martin’s Lane will host the world premiere on 12 November 2013 although previews will start running from 30 October 2013 and the show continues through the iwnter until 08 March 2014 – it is already on several Theatre Breaks Angels Christmas list!
Monday to Saturday evenings: 19:30pm
Wednesday and Saturday matinees 14:30pm
Jeeves and Wooster- Perfect Nonsense theatre breaks always come with tickets and hotel accommodation, although you can choose to add on rail travel, or a wide range of top London attractions to make your break even more spiffing!
When looking for nearby hotels consider the Radisson Blu Edwardian Leicester Square or the Kingsway Hall. For a rather swish five star break do check the Waldorf Hilton but if you are watching the pennies then the 3 star St Giles or even the Covent Garden Travelodge may fit the bill although do consider the Bedford Hotel in Russell Square too, which has just been done up and looks the bees knees (for a three star) and is a very reasonable price!
If you haven't seen Jeeves & Wooster in 'Perfect Nonsense', you must. It's excellent! Thank you for the recommendation
