Presented by Cahoots Theatre Company.

Robert Daws is pictured in a black suit with a dickie bow and holding a cocktail whilst smiling. The background is blue and patterned. Towards the bottom is the show title, with other text that reads ‘Starring Robert Daws, written by William Humble’.

P. G. Wodehouse, or Plum as he’s known to his near and dear, is trying to write the latest instalment of 'Jeeves and Wooster.' However, a would-be biographer, his wife, his daughter, and even his two Pekingese have other ideas!

Join the famous writer for marvellous tales and spectacular tunes! Hear stories of first meeting Jeeves, an addiction to soap operas, and why he wrote books that were ‘like musical comedies without music.’ Listen to songs composed by Broadway legends with lyrics written by himself and be entertained with characters such as Lord Emsworth, Gussie Fink-Nottle and the squashily romantic Madeline Bassett.

But beneath all the fun and laughter is there a darker story to be told?

Based on the life and writings of P. G. Wodehouse, William Humble’s play set in the 1950s takes us into the author's New York State home. Starring Robert Daws ('Jeeves and Wooster,' 'Poldark,' 'The Royal,' 'Rock and Chips,' 'How the Other Half Loves') and with songs by Jerome Kern, George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Ivor Novello.

Age guidance 12+.

Presented by Cahoots Theatre Company. Written by William Humble. The play is performed by arrangement with the Wodehouse Estate.
