About this event

Event info

One of the funniest books written during the nineteenth century receives a brand-new stage adaptation! Jonathan Goodwin plays hapless and humourless Charles Pooter, whose mundane existence provides the setting for this comedic look at suburbia.

City clerk Charles Pooter is a very ordinary Nobody who nonetheless decides that his mundane life is worthy of posterity by keeping a diary. Now you are all invited to listen to his own accounts of his suburban life with wife Carrie and their friends, Cummings and Gowing. Never realising that he is usually the butt of the jokes being told at his expense, Pooter’s preening pomposity ensures the audience laughs at him, and not with him! Nothing much ever happens, which is precisely the point in this sparkling late Victorian comic tale. Jonathan Goodwin performs in a show scripted by himself.

Tickets £12 from website.
