[Oxford University Light Entertainment Society]

Good Show, Jeeves! (Trinity, 2000)

"Tell me - do you know everything, Jeeves?"
"I really don't know, sir"
Director's Notes

Well, another term is almost at an end and there is OULES' third play this year to mark the occasion. It has been a very eventful and, dare we say it, successful year for the society. We are well on the way to gaining university recognition from the Proctors, we have a website and we've even got T-shirts! Everyone has worked so hard this year, and it's absolutely fantastic to see everything coming together finally. We have to say a huge thank you to the St. Peter's Society for their generous donation which has ensured that OULES will have a long and happy future. We will have a stall at Freshers' Fair 2000 so hopefully we will be able to 'coerce' some more members from there!

As for this production there needs to be a number of shouts going out for several people. First of all I have to thank the wonderful cast who have all given everything they have, despite the fact that exams have been hanging over everyone's heads. Thank you to you all and I hope you all do as spectacularly well in your exams as you deserve. Next thanks to Anna Gallagher and Magdalen College School for putting us in contact with the boys who perform so well in this production. Thanks are also due to their parents for enduring the constant telephone calls over rehearsal and performance changes, and also for delivering and collecting the boys! As always, thanks are also due to Rev. Christopher Jones for the use of St. Peter's College Chapel and also for agreeing to be our Senior Member. Many thanks also to Mrs. Fleming for the use of our wonderful surroundings here in the Warden's Garden at Wadham College. Thanks to the Chaplain of Wadham College for his agreement to the use of the Chapel in the even of wet weather in the next few days!

For those who have been following the rise of OULES it may be of interest to know that the money from this year's productions will be donated to the Matthew Maine Meningitis Trust.

It only remains for me to thank all the above people again and any of those that we have miss out - it's not that we're not grateful, we just owe so many people so many thanks for their help. The final thanks goes to the audience for turning up to support what we consider to be a really worthwhile project. Thank you all and see you next year!

Cast

Bertie Wooster-Kate Broadhurst
"...You are an anti-social animal, Bertie, a drone."
Jeeves-Alex Henlin
"...If ever in the whole history of human affairs there was a moment when that lofty brain was required, it is now"
Gussie Fink-Nottle-James Needham
"...Spink-Bottle? The timid, teacup-passing, thin bread and butter 'yes' man?"
Bingo Little-Lucy Norris
"...If there is one fellow in the world who could alleviate the horrors of this blighted visit, that bloke is young Bingo."
Madeline Bassett-Rhi Mogridge
"...When a girl suddenly, out of the blue, asks if you don't sometimes feel that the starts are God's daisy chain, you've got to wonder."
Aunt Dahlia-Liz Norman
"Aunt Dahlia's always been a good stick. I have never wavered in my appreciation of her humanity, sporting qualities and general good-eggishness"
Aunt Agatha-noga zivan (Wadham)
"...When I hear she is moving in the same hemisphere as me I tend to quake"
Mr. Filmer-Anas Alazami
"... His entire demeanour is such that many an experienced undertaker would have been deceived by his appearance and start embalming on sight"
Miss. Waterbury-Amy Leyland
"...Bane of my life. Met her yet? Lurks around here, looming round corners to put the strain on me."
Bonzo Travers-Johnny Miller
"...A kid who requires not education in Greek and Latin, but a swift slosh to the base of the skull with a black-jack"
Thomas Spencer-Andrew Wordsworth
"...Do you have an inkling of the sort of scourge you've taken into your home? In the society of young Thomas, strong men quail. There is no devilry beyond his scope."
