Photos: Robert Daws in Wodehouse in Wonderland

Photos have been released for Wodehouse in Wonderland.

Written by William Humble, the play stars Robert Daws (The Royals) as P.G. Wodehouse.

The UK tour kicked off last week at Malvern Theatre, and is now running at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford – the birthday place of P.G. Wodehouse. After dates including Windsor, Cheltenham and Ipswich, the tour wraps up on 28 April at the Albany Theatre in Coventry.

Directed by Robin Herford, the play is based on the life and writings of P.G. Wodehouse, and takes place in P.G. Wodehouse’s New York State home in the 1950’s.

Plum, as he is known to family and friends, is working away at the latest adventures of Bertie Wooster but is interrupted by a young would-be biographer, his adored wife, daughter Snorkles, and his two Pekingese. He shares stories about how Jeeves entered his life, how he became addicted to American soap operas and why he wrote books that were ‘like musical comedies without music’.

He also sings songs composed by Broadway legends such as  Jerome Kern, George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Ivor Novello, with lyrics written by himself, and entertains the audience with characters such as Bertie Wooster, Jeeves, Lord Emsworth, Gussie Fink-Nottle and the squashily romantic Madeline Bassett.

Robert Daws is well known for his TV work including leading roles in Jeeves and Wooster; John Sullivan’s Roger Roger and Rock and Chips; the British Comedy Award winning Outside Edge; Casualty, Midsomer Murders, Death in Paradise, Poldark, Sick Note, Father Brown, Agatha Raisin and eight series of The Royal as well as the BBC’s murder mystery series, Sister Boniface. 

On stage, his credits include Pischik in The Cherry Orchard with Ian McKellen and directed by Sean Mathias.
