Jeeves in Bloom
by Margaret Raether
from the stories of P.G. Wodehouse

Based on characters originated by beloved British author P.G. Wodehouse. At the play’s start, the lovably loopy Bertie Wooster has just returned to London from a trip to the Riviera with his Aunt Dahlia. He’s catching up with his valet Jeeves when a telegram (actually a series of telegrams) arrives from Aunt Dahlia summoning him, upon pain of death, to come immediately to Brinkley Court, the family’s country home. Just when Bertie and Jeeves are ready to depart, Gussie Fink-Nottle, his old school chum and a world famous expert on newts, arrives to seek advice in the romance department. Without a thought, Bertie whisks him off to Brinkley Court for the weekend, along with Jeeves. This sets in motion a series of precarious situations for Bertie, such as romantic entanglements akin to Cyrano de Bergerac, possible death by meat cleaver, and even burglary of the family estate. As always, his unflappable, brilliant valet Jeeves is there to save the day!

Noted humorist P. G. Wodehouse enjoyed enormous popular success during a career that lasted more than seventy years before his death in 1975. He did experience personal and career troubles during and after World War II, due to his internment in France by the Germans, and a series of talks and radio broadcasts he made about his internment. He was accused of collaboration with the Germans and even treason before the British government cleared him of any wrong doing. Today, Wodehouse is probably best known for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories. Audiences may be familiar with the television series “Jeeves & Wooster,” which starred Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry from 1990 to 1993. However, the Jeeves series was adapted for television by the BBC even earlier in the 1960s with the title “The World of Wooster.” David Niven and Arthur Treacher also starred as Wooster and Jeeves, respectively, in a short 1930s film with the title “Thank You, Jeeves!”
