Taking the Mick out of High Society

It is no fun being serious all the time; every now and then we all need to take a break from our problems and engage in a bit of fun, a bit of silliness, and bit of Perfect Nonsense. I mean, look at Jeeves and Wooster; their stuck in between two world wars, at a time of posterity, yet they always manage to have a smile on their face. Granted, they are aristocrats, and aren't suffering the same financial problems as everyone else in the 1930s, but all the same, life in that decade was not easy.

If you are wondering just exactly who Jeeves and Wooster are, let me direct you to the novels of P.G. Wodenhouse. Well known for his humorist writings, Jeeves and Wooster was a comedy series narrated by the wealthy, but imbecilic Bertie Wooster, who recounts the misfortunes of the adventures he has with his friend Jeeves. The books were adapted into a television drama by comedy duo, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie in the 1990s, and was very popular.

Now Jeeves and Wooster are returning, this time to the stage. Starring Stephen Mangan and Matthew Macfadyen, Perfect Nonsense runs between the 30th October - 8th March at the Duke of York's Theatre. Follow them on a delightful trip to the countryside as Wooster is called upon to play matchmaker.
