Matthew Macfadyen & Stephen Mangan star as Jeeves & Wooster in West End Perfect Nonsense 
Matthew Macfadyen and Stephen Mangan will star as Jeeves and Wooster in new play Perfect Nonsense, which is transferring to the West End later this year.

The production, which is directed by Sean Foley (The Ladykillers), will run at the Duke of York's Theatre from 30 October 2013 (press night 12 November) following runs at Richmond Theatre (10-19 October) and Brighton Theatre Royal (22-26 October).

Written by siblings Robert and David Goodale, Perfect Nonsense is adapted from PG Wodehouse's The Code of the Woosters (1938), the first installment in the Totleigh Towers saga.

Director Sean Foley said: "When the Goodale brothers' exceptional script, based on PG Wodehouse's quintessential English double act of Jeeves and Wooster, was shown to me, I immediately knew I wanted to do it. Wodehouse is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, English comic writer, and the challenge of putting his finest creation on stage for the very first time is a tremendously exciting one."

Matthew Macfadyen, who has starred in films including Pride & Prejudice and Anna Kerenina, described the play as "an absolute hoot". He added: "I'm also especially pleased to be working again with the supremely talented Messrs Mangan and Foley."

Perfect Nonsense will be produced in the West End by Mark Goucher and Mark Rubinstein. Tickets are now on sale. Read full article here!
