An inventive, fast-paced comedyfeaturingP.G. Wodehouse'siconic double act.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!
Based on P.G. Wodehouse's delightfully bonkers stories, especially The Code of the Woosters, the Goodale Brothers' dramatisation premiered at the Duke of York's Theatre, West End, in November 2013, prior to a UK tour.
Written for a cast of three, who play multiple roles, this adaptation will suit any theatre company or drama group looking for a comic play to perform.

Here's what you say about us...

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 deliciously bonkers characters.


As adults entering the real world, Robert became an actor, while David pursued a career as a documentary film-maker, but both remained committed to making people laugh. In 2010 they were encouraged to combine their comic talents to adapt P.G. Wodehouse's The Code of the Woosters for the stage. They finally put pen to paper, and several drafts later, with the blessing of the Wodehouse Estate, Perfect Nonsense was born.

'Razor-sharp ingenuity...comedy at its purest'



Time Out

'Wodehouse himself would have loved this...captures the dotty, sunlit innocence of his work with panache'



Telegraph

'Smart and crafty... [will]entertain those who have never been exposed to Wodehouse, and devotees will lap it up'



Evening Standard

'Inventive ...shimmers with just the right dose of silliness and self-mockery'



Daily Mail

'Furiously fast and funny...clever and inventive'



Metro

'Joyous...works beautifully well... so true to the creator's madcap spirit that you can imagine him wishing he'd thought of doing it like this'
