‘Three Men in A Boat’ will sail in to Dundee Rep Theatre later this month, running from February 17 to 21.

In Craig Gilbert’s stage adaptation of Jerome K Jerome’s ripping yarn Michael Rouse will play George, joining Tom Hackney as Harris, David Partridge as J and Anna Westlake as Nelly.

As 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.

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. In Craig Gilbert’s production, this classic tale of boating misadventure comes complete with a working pub, live piano accompaniment, some ale, music hall singing, a dog and a lot of physical comedy.

The 2015 UK Tour of ‘Three Men in a Boat’ is presented by The Original Theatre Company and Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds. Ticket details from the box office on 01382 223530.
