The Dinner Scripts of The P G Wodehouse Society (UK)

As you may be aware, the Society is approaching its 20th anniversary, and as the Committee took stock of its activities over those two decades, we decided to offer members the opportunity of acquiring a copy of all the scripts which have been written and used for the biennial formal dinners, and which have helped them to acquire a high reputation for memorable evenings.

The Society has been very fortunate over the years in the list of professional entertainers who have participated in these presentations, which are built round a combination of Wodehouse’s words on a particular theme with generally four or five of his most relevant lyrics interpolated in the dialogue. Apart from the complete texts of the scripts themselves, the book includes relevant pages of information from each of the dinner programmes; the menus; a list of Wodehouse songs used; a list of participants in the entertainments; and the Society Grace, specially written for the Society when it was first established.

An order may be placed with Tony Ring by mail at 34 Longfield, Great Missenden, HP16 0EG or by e-mail at ring.tony@yahoo.co.uk. Payment should be made with the order: either by cheque payable to ‘A J Ring’ and denominated in pounds, or by sterling credit to his paypal account: ring.tony@yahoo.co.uk. Unfortunately, card payments cannot be accepted.

We are expecting the book to be available by the time of the next Society evening meeting, on February 15. The price including postage in the UK will be £10, with a £2 reduction for members of the Society who specify in their order that they will collect their copy at the February meeting. Overseas buyers will unfortunately have to bear a postage premium of equal to £4 in Europe and £7 further afield. (Please note that the postage charge per copy for overseas customers is likely to be lower for multiple copies. Please e-mail for details.)

The book is being published privately on behalf of the Society and will not be available through Amazon or any similar distributor.
