About the Show Less...

Two of literature’s best-loved characters come to the West End in a new play adapted from the works of P G Wodehouse. Read More >

James Lance stars as effervescent, aristocratic fool Bertie Wooster alongside John Gordon Sinclair as his dutiful valet, Jeeves, in the world premiere of the new stage play Perfect Nonsense featuring P G Wodehouse’s iconic double act.

When a perfectly delightful trip to the countryside takes a turn for the worse, 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 Wooster, 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.

Join Jeeves and Wooster for an evening of Perfect Nonsense performed by two of the finest comedy actors of their generation and be the first to see this hilarious new comedy.
