Three Men in a Boat
by Jerome K. Jerome
adapted by Joe Hackett
produced by IKProductions
Twenty-one characters, three actors and one boat… what could go wrong?
Join Jerome, Harris, George and Montmorency as they encounter a variety of people, places and peculiar maladies and discuss various important topics such as ‘why very few people suffer from sea-sickness on land’ and ‘the advantages of cheese as a travelling companion’.
Following their previous summer successes with A Rip-Roaring Summer Adventure and The Wind in the Willows, IKP returns with their unique brand of fast-paced, quick-witted adaptations of classic British novels with this new adaptation of Jerome K. Jerome’s iconic story. Voted the 2nd funniest book of all time by Esquire and listed in The Guardian’s 100 best novels, Three Men in a Boat is a raucous, slapstick, riotous farce which takes you on a whistle-stop tour of Edwardian England in this bonkers show directed by Zara Ramm (RSC, Bristol Old Vic).
IKProductions brings new life to classic stories for a modern audience. With a reputation for slapstick farce and inventive comedy, IKP guarantees a “delightfully daft” (The Stage) evening at the theatre.
Three Men in a Boat contains partial nudity and some scenes of a sexual nature (16+)
