It’s a perfect theatre treat
The award-winning hit comedy Jeeves And Wooster In Perfect Nonsense drops in at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from April 20-25.
Written by The Goodale Brothers and based on the legendary characters created by PG Wodehouse, the production sees Robert Webb re-join the Olivier award-winning comedy for a UK tour.
Robert willbe starring as Bertie Wooster, Jason Thorpe will play Jeeves and the role of Seppings will be played by Christopher Ryan, from The Young Ones and Absolutely Fabulous.
The charmingly incompetent Bertie Wooster and his unflappable valet Jeeves are brought to life in this highly acclaimed comedy by brothers Robert and David Goodale. Based on and adapted from the established literary works of P.G. Wodehouse, the comedy stars Robert Webb, best known for his role as Jeremy in Channel 4’s multi-award winning Peep Show which he stars alongside long-time collaborator David Mitchell.
Alongside this, Mitchell and Webb wrote and starred in The Mitchell and Webb Situation and That Mitchell and Webb Look which won the BAFTA for best comedy in 2007.
In 2008 Webb made his West End stage debut in the UK premiere of Fat Pig by Neil LaBute at Trafalgar Studios and has subsequently appeared on stage in Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense (Duke of York’s) and the Chichester transfer of Neville’s Island (Duke of York’s).
Jason Thorpe has recently appeared on stage in Dennis Kelly’s adaptation of From Morning to Midnight, Nation (both National Theatre), What the Butler Saw (Vaudeville Theatre) and Absurd Person Singular (The Curve, Leicester).
Like many siblings growing up together, writers Robert and David Goodale enjoyed their own, very particular brand of humour.
As children they created a range of ridiculous characters that seamlessly evolved into members of their extended family. It was only later that they discovered that P.G. Wodehouse had beaten them to it, in creating an entirely credible world full of even more delicious characters.
Perfect Nonsense is produced by Mark Goucher and Mark Rubinstein.
