Jeeves In Bloom – P.G. Wodehouse’s portrayal of daft yet likeable characters from British upper class society continues on Chemainus Theatre’s stage. Adapted by Margaret Raether and directed by Mark DuMez, this version sees Bernard Cuffling as respected gentleman’s gentleman Jeeves and Warren Bain as young playboy Bertie Wooster. If you are a fan of the Richard Briers and Michael Hordern BBC radio plays or the Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie television series then this play might be a must see.
