Jeeves and Wooster

Jeeves and Wooster

If you're after a show to drag an uncultured mate to, look no further. Jeeves and Wooster is the perfectly polished show for you!

I’m relieved and delighted to say this show was actually funny (my expectations were low due to high school productions and improvisation) and an ideal length. Filled with impeccable timing, English-dandy whimsy, and fast paced character changes, this was a well considered, well performed play that I’d happily see again and again. 

Jeeves and Wooster transports the audience to a wild weekend at Totleigh Towers with Bertie Wooster and his ever faithful, ‘gentleman’s personal gentleman’ Jeeves. On a mission to steal a prized cow creamer, nothing will stand in Bertie’s way .

It’s the first Fortune Theatre mainstage production for director Jordan Dickson, an Otago graduate.

“It’s brilliant the Fortune is supporting younger artists like myself,” Jordan said, “and it’s amazing to have the opportunity to work on a mainstage production of an incredible play like Jeeves and Wooster, right here in Dunedin!”

Actors Jack Buchanan, Andrew Paterson and Andrew Ford are absurdly talented, and it cannot be stressed enough how clever they are. 

Based on characters by P.G. Woodhouse, and stage directed by the marvellous Amy Wright, it will be running until the 3rd of March so get your ticket quick, buy a bottle of mini bubbly at the bar and prepare to laugh until you cry.
