Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense extends West End run at the Duke Of York’s Theatre

It has been announced that Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense has extended its West End run at the Duke of York’s Theatre until 20th September 2014 due to public demand.

Matthew Macfadyen, Stephen Mangan and Mark Hadfield will star in the comedy until 5th April 2014. Further star casting will be announced in due course.
 
The charmingly incompetent Bertie Wooster and his unflappable valet Jeeves are brought to life in a new comedy by brothers Robert and David Goodale. Based on and adapted from the established literary works of P.G. Wodehouse, Perfect Nonsense started previews at the Duke of York’s Theatre on 30th October 2013.
 
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 filmmaker, but both remained committed to making people laugh. Two years ago 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.
