The Velvet Onion is proud to be able to offer one lucky winner a pair of tickets to see the brand new incarnation of legendary characters Jeeves & Wooster in the West End.

The show – Jeeves & Wooster in ‘Perfect Nonsense’ – stars Matthew McFadyen (SpooksRipper Street) as the dutiful valet, Jeeves, to Green Wing and Episodes star Stephen Mangan as the effervescent, aristocratic fool Bertie Wooster.

It tells of a perfectly delightful trip to the countryside which takes a turn for the worse as Bertie Wooster is unwittingly called on to play matchmaker.

He must reconcile the affections of his host’s drippy daughter Madeline Bassett with his newt-fancying acquaintance Gussie Fink-Nottle, and if Bertie, ably assisted by the ever-dependable Jeeves, can’t pull off the wedding of the season he’ll be forced to abandon his cherished bachelor status and marry the ghastly girl himself!

The first performances of this new stage play adapted from the works of P.G. Wodehouse takes place at the Richmond Theatre, London, on Thursday, October 10th – where it begins a series of previews – before a jolly jaunt off to the Theatre Royal in Brighton for more previews starting Tuesday, October 22nd.

Following this, the show’s official world première takes place with its West End debut at the prestigious Duke Of York’s Theatre on Wednesday, October 30th, where the show will run until at least March.  And this, dear readers, is where TVO comes in.
