Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense


4-15 Feb 2015
Comedic Play

KickstArt, in association with Pieter Toerien, is proud to present the South African premiere of this smash hit West End show -  winner of the 2014 Olivier Award for Best Comedy.  Join the effervescent, aristocratic twit, Bertie Wooster and his dutiful valet, Jeeves, in this critically acclaimed, utterly hilarious new adventure based on the well-loved books by P G Wodehouse.



When a country house weekend takes a turn for the worse, Bertie Wooster (Jonathan Roxmouth)  is unwittingly called on to play matchmaker, but also to steal a silver cow creamer from Totleigh Towers. Naturally, the ever dependable Jeeves (Graham Hopkins) is there to prevent Bertie from making a complete fool of himself in front of a cast of Wodehouse¹s finest characters.  Enjoy an evening of raucous comedy in the company of Gussie Fink-Nottle, Madeline Bassett, Sir Watkin Bassett, Stiffy Bing, Dahlia Travers, Roderick Spode and Constable Oates!

This production, which opened in Cape Town in September 2014, has enjoyed rave reviews and sold out houses in both Cape Town and Johannesburg. Featuring three of South Africa’s greatest actors, and directed and designed by Durban’s own theatrical dream team, Steven Stead and Greg King, this riotous romp is guaranteed to tickle the funny bone and bring a smile to even the most cynical theatre goer. This is ideal theatre fare for anyone aged 8 to 80!  The Jeeves and Wooster company are being graciously hosted in Durban by Sir Harvey’s guest house, in JB Marks Rd.
