Jeeves Takes Charge performance starring Australian actor Sam Harrison
February 11 @ 3:00 pm - February 12 @ 5:00 pm
RSC, Chichester and West End leading Australian actor Sam Harrison appears for three exclusive performances at the Tabard in the first revival of the Olivier Award-winning one-man show, Jeeves Takes Charge by P. G. Wodehouse, first performed by Edward Duke.
Transporting us back to an age where work is unthinkable and keeping in with your relatives is of paramount importance for the gentleman of leisure, Harrison plays 22 roles including the amiable, brainless, goofy man-about town, Bertie Wooster, and his bachelor valet, the dourly efficient, unusually intelligent, Jeeves.
Jeeves’ attempts to keep his young master unmarried and himself in employment, whilst Wooster loses both his fiancée, Lady Florence Craye, and a sudden desire to have children around the house due to Jeeves’ cunning. What follows is a masterly piece of comic timing and multi-faceted mimicry highlighting the bright, brittle high society life of the 1920’s.
Jeeves Takes Charge was originally directed by Hugh Wooldridge, who returns to direct Sam Harrison in a brand new production, the witty, wacky world of P. G. Wodehouse is brought vividly to life on the Tabard stage and plays for an exclusive three performances. Don’t miss.
