Three men in their eponymous boat are sailing their way to the Cambridge Arts Theatre stage from January 21 to 24.
Following hit tours in 2012 and 2014, director Craig Gilbert’s acclaimed adaption of Jermone K Jerome’s classic story of boating misadventure returns to the UK stage in a bolder and wilder theatre production.
Originally intended as a guide to boating on the Thames, Jerome’s tale of youthful friendship, mischief and folly still celebrates the essence of the British character.
Long after its publication the message still rings true, inspiring modern comedic legends from Morecambe and Wise to Monthy Python.
The Original Theatre Company work alongisde the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds to shake up this British comedy classic. Audiences can expect more singing, crazier adventures and even brighter blazers in this latest tour of Gilbert’s ingenius adaption.
Equipped with a working pub, live piano accompaniment, music hall singing, a feast of physical comedy and a dog, settle yourself down for a rocky but raucous ride with English literature’s most hapless sailors.
