Award-winning West End theatre hit Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense is coming to Buxton - and we are offering readers the chance to win tickets to see it.
We have a pair of tickets to give away for Thursday, September 10, which is the opening performance in a three-night run at Buxton Opera House.
Winning Best New Comedy at the 2014 Olivier Awards, the incompetent Bertie Wooster and his unflappable valet Jeeves are brought to life in this highly acclaimed comedy, adapted from the works of P.G. Wodehouse.
When a country house weekend takes a turn for the worse, Bertie Wooster is unwittingly called on to play matchmaker and to also steal a silver cow creamer fromTotleigh Towers. Naturally, Jeeves is there to stop Bertie from making a fool of himself.
Perfect Nonsense has been acclaimed by the critics as the comedy of the year, with audiences enjoying a raucous time in the company of characters such as Gussie Fink-Nottle, Madeline Bassett, Sir Watkin Bassett, Dahlia Travers and Roderick Spode.
