Devonshire Park Theatre
Tuesday 28 August - Saturday 8 September 2012
Keeping audiences laughing for well over a century Jerome K Jerome’s classic tale of boating misadventure has become the quintessential example of the charm and wit of Victorian England.
Originally intended as a guide to boating on the Thames, Jerome’s ripping yarn of youthful friendship, mischief and folly celebrates the very essence of Britishness inspiring many of our comic legends from Morecambe and Wise to Monty Python.
In an attempt to escape the stresses of city life three friends J, Harris and George accompanied by their faithful canine companion Montmorency decide to take to the river in order to relax and rejuvenate. The holiday, however, quickly unravels and descends into chaos…
In this our Diamond Jubilee and Olympic year the award winning Original Theatre Company take this classic tale of British misadventure and folly by the scruff of the neck. Equipped with a working pub, live piano accompaniment, some ale, music hall singing, a dog and a feast of physical comedy, settle yourself in for a night out to remember.
