Radio play: "Jeeves Takes Charge," by P.G. Wodehouse

  This edition of Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre is a celebratory one: It's our 100th original broadcast. Every week, we bring you radio plays we've either written ourselves or adapted from short stories, and this week is no exception. 

In this episode, we return to two of our favorite characters, Bertie and Jeeves, as taken from P.G. Wodehouse's "Jeeves Takes Charge." We've done several adaptations of Jeeves stories, but this is a very special one because it describes how Bertie and Jeeves came to be companions. 

We thank you for being our trusted companions throughout these radio broadcasts!
