...

The posh, high society London scene of the 1920s is thrown into chaos by hapless playboy, Bertie Wooster, and his old school chum, Eustace Bassington-Bassington.

The two hatch a brilliant plan to dupe their meddling relatives to save Bertie from an undesired marriage and Eustace from an unwanted job in India. But will the ever-faithful manservant, Jeeves, be able to rescue these bumbling fools from themselves?

A delightful romp full of deception and disguise, the play is a perfect celebration of the arrival of summer and an exciting conclusion to our 30(+2) season.
