Like many siblings growing up together, writers Robert and David Goodale enjoyed their own, very particular, brand of humour. As children they created a range of ridiculous characters that seamlessly evolved into members of their extended family. It was only later that they discovered that P.G. Wodehouse had beaten them to it, in creating an entirely credible world full of even more deliciously bonkers characters.

As adults entering the real world, Robert became an actor, while David pursued a career as a documentary film-maker, but both remained committed to making people laugh. In 2013 they were encouraged to combine their comic talents to adapt P.G. Wodehouse’s The Code of the Woosters for the stage. They finally put pen to paper, and several drafts later, with the blessing of the Wodehouse Estate, Perfect Nonsense was born.
