JEEVES INTERVENES
BY MARGARET RAETHER
DIRECTED BY MICHAEL GOLDBERG
FEATURING CHRISTIAN GRAY, JIM MCCANCE, AND LYDIA BERGER GRAY
NOVEMBER 2 – DECEMBER 4, 2022

To open our final season, First Folio brings back our very first
adventure of Bertie and Jeeves from 2008. The pleasure-seeking and
marriage-averse Bertie is desperately trying to avoid his dragon-lady
Aunt Agatha or “she who chews broken bottles; she who kills rats
with her teeth.” In tow with Bertie’s aunt is Gertrude
Winkleswoth-Bode, the society special Agatha has chosen to tame her
wayward nephew. However, when Bertie’s impecunious pal, Eustace
Bassington-Bassington becomes smitten with Gertie, Jeeves sees a
pathway to avoid disaster…providing they can also avoid a battle-ax
Scottish uncle, Sir Rupert Watlington-Pipps. Filled with all of the
sly word play and manic antics you’ve come to expect, this is the
pitch-perfect Jeeves story we all need to escape the doldrums of our
own lives.

“It’s a champagne cocktail of a show, as bright and engaging as a
garden party in May!”
Kerry Reid – Chicago Tribune
“A two-hour snort of pure giggle gas!”
Catey Sullivan – The Pioneer Press
“As dry as a well-made martini and equally potent!”
Barbara Vitello – The Daily Herald
