Episode 27: Actor ROBERT DAWS chats about Wodehouse in Wonderland and his passion for PG Wodehouse

20 Feb 2023

In this podcast episode we plunge into the literary world of PG Wodehouse with well-known actor, Robert Daws. Robert appeared in the TV series of Jeeves and Wooster as Tuppy Glossop and played Dr. Gordon Ormerod in the long-running ITV drama series The Royal– to name just two from a long, successful and highly acclaimed career.

Robert is an expert on the works of PG Wodehouse – and he tells the story of how he came to be touring with the show and what an incredible success the tour has been so far. He also talks about his passion for PG Wodehouse’s work – not just a writer, but a musician and lyricist – did you know he wrote the lyrics to Anything Goes (British Version?!)

‘Everyone should come to see the show, whether you love PG Wodehouse or not – it’s a great night out at the theatre, full of laughter and music.”

Thank you to Robert for such a great conversation – we can’t wait to see you at the New Wolsey Theatre soon!

Wodehouse in Wonderland  is based on the life and writings of PG Wodehouse. William Humble’s play is set in the 1950s and takes us to the author's New York State home with songs by Jerome Kern, George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Ivor Novello.

The show is presented by Cahoots Theatre Company, written by William Humble by arrangement with the Wodehouse Estate.
