Perfect Nonsense

Genre: Comedy

Author: Adapted from PG Wodehouse’s The Code Of The Woosters by sibling writing duo Robert and David Goodale

Director: Sean Foley


When a perfectly delightful trip to the countryside 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!

Matthew Macfadyen Role: Jeeves

BAFTA award-winning Spooks actor Macfadyen described the play as “an absolute hoot,” commenting, “I am delighted to be a part of it. I'm also especially pleased to be working again with the supremely talented Messrs Mangan and Foley.”
