The Walpole Players will be presenting a staged reading of Jeeves at Sea by Margaret Raether, adapted from the stories of P.G. Wodehouse, on Saturday, July 10, at 5:30 PM on the Walpole Town Common.
Set sail for laughter as Bertie Wooster (played by Tom Durnford) revels in life aboard the Vanderley yacht. Bertie is the pampered guest of the lively and fetching Lady Stella (Jenny Plante), accompanied, as always, by his peerless valet, Jeeves (Mike Delaney). If only Bertie’s pal Crumpet (Rebecca Saunders) hadn’t assaulted a prince! In the blink of an eye, Bertie is masquerading as a romance novelist, Crumpet is posing as his own long-lost twin, and a sinister foreign Count (Gina Richardson) is challenging Bertie to a duel over the misunderstood affections of Lady Stella’s companion Miss Pilbeam (Ruth Pratt). Will this madcap case of mistaken identities end in Bertie’s doom? Or worse, his marriage?? Have no fear! Jeeves will sort it all out.
We are asking audience members to support The Walpole Players with a suggested donation of $5 for adults, but any amount is greatly appreciated, and will help us keep the curtain up and lights on at the Helen Miller Theater!
Don’t forget to bring your choice of outdoor seating (lawn chair, blanket, etc.). For more information, please email WalpolePlayers@gmail.com, check our website TheWalpolePlayers.org, or call 603-756-2535.
