Robert Webb stars as the effervescent, aristocratic fool Bertie Wooster and Mark Heap as his dutiful valet, Jeeves in the world premiere of the new stage play Perfect Nonsense featuring P.G. Wodehouse’s iconic double act, Jeeves and Wooster.
When a perfectly delightful trip to the countryside 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!
Perfect Nonsense stars two of the finest comedy actors of their generation.
