THE CODE OF THE WOOSTERS

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Richard Briers, Michael Hordern, Jonathan Cecil et al.

Audio Theater • 3 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2000

The antics at Totleigh Towers spotlight the ingenious manservant, Jeeves, the absurdly obtuse aristocrat, Bertie Wooster, and the clever plot to steal a silver cow creamer from the home of an irascible magistrate. Farce, social satire, and comic brilliance abound in Wodehouse’s masterpiece, featuring the charming and inimitable master-servant duo Jeeves and Wooster. The cast of characters embrace lighthearted escapades, underscored by Wooster’s malapropisms and Jeeves’s preposterous but genius schemes. The pacing of the full cast is flawless. Each distinctive wit sparkles. Richard Briers’s lightning-swift delivery and striking comic emphasis achieve an impeccable rendering of the bumbling Wooster. Michael Hordern aptly captures Jeeves’s long-suffering superciliousness. All in all, a treasured work is made more exquisite in this audio interpretation. A.W.
