Product Description

In a riveting one-man performance, Hugh Bonneville (Iris, Lost in Austen) perfectly captures the small mind and large aspirations of Mr. Charles Pooter, who has become one of the most indelible characters in English literature. Pooter lives an utterly mundane life.

But that doesn’t keep him from recording it for posterity—in hilarious detail. Pooter is the prototype for lovable twits from Reginald Perrin and Basil Fawlty (Fawlty Towers) to The Office’s Michael Scott.
 
Mr. Pooter is a middle-aged, middle-class city clerk in late Victorian England who chronicles his daily domestic and social frustrations.

Home improvements, petty humiliations, accidents involving an iron boot scraper, tiffs with his wife Carrie, pained encounters with their mildly rebellious son Lupin, visits from friends Mr. Cummings and Mr. Gowing: all are reported amusingly by the pompous Pooter.
