Casting announced for PG Wodehouse comedy
Casting has been announced for Salisbury Playhouse’s adaptation of PG Wodehouse’s golfing stories, Love on the Links.
Michael Fenton Stevens (Benidorm, ITV; Yes Prime Minister, UK Tour) plays the Oldest Member with Tim Frances (The Magna Carta Plays, Salisbury Playhouse; Sweet Bird of Youth, Chichester Festival Theatre) as Fitt and Jenna Boyd (Wind in the Willows, London Palladium) as Lily.
Tiffany Graves (Meow Meow: Apocalypse Meow, Shakespeare’s Globe; The Producers, UK Tour), Adam Jackson-Smith (The Real Thing, Bath Theatre Royal), David Shelley (Dark Heart, ITV) and Rob Witcomb (Beryl, The New Vic) complete the cast.
In the rarefied surroundings of Wood Hills Golf Club in deepest Surrey all is very genteel. The Oldest Member is having a snooze in the corner while the barman is pouring another White Horse and Malvern at the ‘19th Hole’.
It’s soon time, however, for the Oldest Member to stir in his armchair and regale us with stories of seduction, canoodling and thwarted love, with the help of some biffo club members, not to mention the ever graceful Daphne Cartwright and the dashing Jack Ramage.
PG Wodehouse’s golfing stories have been adapted by Jon Glover and Edward Taylor. Jon Glover is known for playing Mr Cholmondley-Warner in Harry Enfield and Chums in the 1990s. He has also appeared in BBC Radio 4’s The Archers as Martin Gibson.
Love on the Links is directed by Ryan McBryde (Before the Party, Jack and the Beanstalk, Salisbury Playhouse) and designed by James Button. The musical supervisor is Paul Herbert.
Love on the Links runs in the Main House of Salisbury Playhouse from Thursday 31 May until Saturday 23 June.
