Oh Clarence!

Playwright John Chapman Director Tim Day


Based on PG Wodehouse's Blandings stories, this delightful comedy follows the antics of Clarence, The Ninth Earl of Emsworth, his formidable sister Connie, dippy son Freddie, arch rival Sir Gregory Parsloe-Parsloe and many others.

Lord Emsworth and his family, pals and arch enemies all under one roof for the weekend – Blandings Castle’s roof. With hilarious results. Oh Clarence!, based on PG Wodehouse’s delightful stories of the dreamy 9th Earl of Emsworth, marked a return to comedy after the previous classic drama, An Inspector Calls.
