Winner of the 2014 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy

When a country house weekend takes a turn for the worse, Bertie Wooster is unwittingly called on to play matchmaker, reconciling the affections of his host’s drippy daughter Madeline Bassett with his newt-fancying acquaintance Gussie Fink-Nottle.  If Bertie, ably assisted by the ever-dependable Jeeves, can’t pull off the wedding of the season he’ll be forced to abandon his cherished bachelor status and marry the ghastly girl himself!

Will Bertie get caught with the Policeman’s helmet again?  Will Aunt Dahlia get her way and lead Bertie into trouble?  How often will Jeeves save the day?  And who is Seppings?

Based on P.G. Wodehouse’s delightfully bonkers stories, this Goodale Brothers’ dramatisation premiered at the Duke of York’s Theatre, West End. Written for a cast of three, who play multiple roles, this adaptation will keep you laughing and breathless all at once. A stuffed dog also makes an appearance.

We’re thrilled to have co-writer David Goodale with us on the evening!
