Description

“M’lord, I realise the situation is grave, but it’s time for the stiff upper lip, and the piece of steel down the spine.”

Whilst Bertie Wooster is out of town, his gentleman's gentleman, the inimitable Jeeves, is on loan to the 9th Earl of Towcester. The Earl’s moonlighting as a racecourse bookie has left him indebted to a fearsome big game hunter, and he’s under pressure to sell his crumbling estate to a wealthy clairvoyant. Can the unflappable and ever-resourceful Jeeves save the day for this nice-but-dim aristocrat and retrieve the family fortune?!

Mischief, mishaps and mayhem abound in this high-spirited comedy which brings Wodehouse’s larger-than-life characters to the stage for the first time!
