Following on from the success of How the Other Half Loves, Wiltshire Creative will be increasing its work as a producing theatre, with three in-house productions on the Salisbury Playhouse Main Stage. Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense will be followed by The Girl on the Train – the thriller based on the bestselling novel by Paula Hawkins and DreamWorks’ film, running from 19 October – 11 November. The season culminates with Dick Whittington, which runs from 25 November 2023 – 7 January 2024.

Director Marieke Audsley said today, “I’m thrilled to be working with Wiltshire Creative and the Octagon Theatre Bolton on this hilarious adaptation of P.G. Wodehouse’s much-loved novel, The Code of the Woosters.

We have a really exciting cast to bring Bertie, Jeeves, their friends (and foes!) to life, and a wonderful creative team to create the fabulous world of Berkeley Mansions and Totleigh Towers. Both dedicated Wodehouse fans and anyone new to Jeeves and Wooster can look forward to a fantastically farcical evening out!”
