Three Men in a Boat

Clive Francis, Jerome K Jerome

PaperBack (02 Feb 2015)

First published in 1889 Jerome K. Jerome's classic tale of boating misadventure has become the quintessential example of the charm and wit of Victorian England. In an attempt to escape the stresses of city life three friends J, Harris and George plus their faithful canine companion Montmorency decide to take a boating jaunt between Kingston and Oxford. However a trip intended to relax and rejuvenate quickly becomes a journey of unquenchable comedy, with death-defying battles with swans, culinary disasters and contrary tea kettles just a few of the challenges facing the trio along the way.

‘Charm is a quality that is undervalued these days in the theatre, and indeed everywhere else. This production has it in spades.’ Daily Telegraph

'Rest assured many of the book's droll episodes are retained. Moreover, Jerome loved a humorous digression, so this troupe's zany deviations seem true to his spirit, as well as refreshing... This touring production would perhaps like to be hailed as the next 39 Steps and land a West End transfer.'  The Times
