Directed by Simon Downing
Starring Giles Shenton (Old Herbaceous & My Dog’s Got No Nose)
Following the continuing success of Old Herbaceous, Kick In The Head productions are back with a rip roaring barrel of fun, Three Men in a Boat, with Giles Shenton (Old Herbaceous himself!) playing the part of Jerome K Jerome.
Join Jerome as he recounts the hilarious story of his boating holiday along the magnificent River Thames with his two companions and Montmorency the dog. Come and join in the fun as Giles Shenton expertly takes the helm and pilots you through the ridiculous tale of men behaving badly while messing about in boats!
“George got out his banjo after supper, and wanted to play it, but Harris objected: he said he had got a headache and did not feel strong enough to stand it. George thought the music might do him good—said music often soothed the nerves and took away a headache; and he twanged two or three notes, just to show Harris what it was like.
Harris said he would rather have the headache.”
“There are a few seriously funny books that remain great for all time. Three Men in a Boat is one of these” The Guardian
“Timeless appeal” The Independent
“Pitch-perfect comedy about, well, three men in a boat” The Telegraph
Giles Shenton “creates an instant rapport with the audience, drawing us into his world and making the characters in it so real we feel you have known them forever. “ Fringe Review
