Darren Weale interviews the actor Robert Daws, who appears in a new show, Wodehouse In Wonderland, which runs at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley between 9th and11th March. Tickets here.
Robert has acted in many, many roles, but clearly Wodehouse is dear to his heart, and as he says, he had a big hand in creating this show, which will go on to run in the US and India in future. This will be a return to the Churchill Theatre for Robert (where he was last seen, murdered (!), in an Agatha Christie play). Robert talks about the importance of Wodehouse as a writer and lyricist, how he came to read his humorous fiction for the first time, the joys of Blandings, Jeeves and Wooster, Mulliner, the Golf Stories, and more.
Robert shares aspects of the show itself and how it came about, playing Tuppy Glossop in TV's Jeeves and Wooster with Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie (and why Tuppy ate so much!), and playing the trumpet in the last episode of Fry and Laurie.
Darren invites Robert to suggest how Jeeves and Wooster respectively would react to the show, and his response, towards the end of the interview, is well worth listening to by itself.
