Progress Theatre: 'Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense'

'Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense' by P.G. Wodehouse. Adapted by David and Robert Goodale.

Bertie Wooster is staging a one-man show about his recent experiences at the country house, Totleigh Towers, but soon discovers he needs help to tell the story.

Ably helped by his valet, Jeeves, and Aunt Dahlia's butler, Seppings, watch as the events of the weekend unfold:

  • Who will end up with the silver cow creamer?
  • Will Madeline and Gussie call off the wedding?
  • Does Constable Oates find his Policeman's helmet?

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern.

Tickets: £14 (concessions £11) which you can book online TicketSource (booking fee applies)

Progress Theatre: 'The Pride'

'The Pride' by by Alexei Kay Campbell.

How do sex, love and relationships intertwine when external pressures conflict with your core feelings?

Alternating between 1958 & 2008, The Pride features three people living similar but radically different lives. It examines, with humour and some sympathy, the changing attitudes to gay men over a period of 50 years, looking at intimacy, identity, and the courage it takes to be who you really are.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.

Tickets: £14 (concessions £11) which you can book online TicketSource (booking fee applies)
