The Andrew Lloyd Webber and Alan Ayckbourn’s light-hearted, fun musical By Jeeves is the highlight of the Old Laundry Theatre’s 25th Anniversary Season and is a rare opportunity to see Alan Ayckbourn’s first revival of this jocular musical in over 20 years. Set in the 1920s and keeping the dottiness of the original P. J. Wodehouse stories, By Jeeves brings to life a cast of colourful characters, who continually and hilariously swap identities as they battle to salvage love and cover up embarrassing errors, causing confusion and mayhem galore! The iconic Wodehouse characters include loveable chump Bertie Wooster with his unquenchable optimism and his wonderfully supercilious butler Jeeves, renowned for his deadpan digs.

By Jeeves will reunite the original creative team from 1996 including Alan Ayckbourn who will direct and set designer Roger Glossop (also owner of the Old Laundry Theatre), who is designing a new set for the intimate 200 seat theatre, as well as choreographer Sheila Carter. Joining the production team is musical director Steven Edis, costumes Caroline Hughes and lighting Jason Taylor.

Alan Ayckbourn, a man of, literally, many words with 81 plays and musicals to his name says: "By Jeeves is a party. It’s a celebration of theatre, so is perfect for the Old Laundry’s 25th. I was always attracted by the innocence in Wodehouse and love the simplicity and characters, which I still find so refreshing."
