Jeeves in Bloom

adapted by Margaret Raether from the stories of P. G. Wodehouse
The peaceful English countryside may never be the same after Bertie Wooster and his unflappable valet, Jeeves, pay a visit. What starts as a plan to pair tongue-tied, amphibian-loving Augustus Fink-Nottle and fanciful, poetry-loving Madeline Basset quickly goes awry. Soon, Bertie is fending off Madeline's amorous advances, reluctantly participating in an attempted burglary, and fleeing attacks from a homicidal French chef. With the stakes this high, the solution must lie with the one and only Jeeves!

Reviews

Chicago Tribune

"...about as delightful a respite as one could hope for. Margaret Raether has brought the old gang back together in Wodehouse's fantasy world, where one knows everything will work out, because Jeeves knows best."

Daily Herald

"Wittily adapted from Wodehouse by Margaret Raether, Jeeves in Bloom incorporates witty banter, convoluted schemes that go awry, misinterpreted intentions and physical shtick."

Pioneer Press Local

"Jeeves in Bloom is an admirable stage adaptation based on the short stories of Wodehouse. It features the irrepressible Bertie Wooster and his imperturbable butler Jeeves."
