THREE men in a boat will be coming to Whitchurch later in February.

The famous Jerome K Jerome book about his trip rowing up the River Thames from Windsor to Henley has been adapted into a play to be staged at Whitchurch’s Talbot Theatre.

Giles Shenton, who has adapted the play, will take the lead role in the play which has been celebrated for more than a century.


A Talbot Theatre spokesman said: “There is riotous fun to be had when Arts Alive presents Giles Shenton's 'Three Men in a Boat' (to say nothing of the dog) at The Talbot Theatre at Whitchurch's Sir John Talbot's School.

“Adapted from the hilarious book by Jerome K Jerome, enjoy the hilarious story of his boating holiday along the magnificent River Thames with his two companions and Monmorency the dog.

“Giles Shenton expertly takes the helm as Jerome and pilots you through the ridiculous tale of men behaving badly while messing about with boats.

“This rip-roaring barrel of fun takes place at 7.30pm on Friday, February 23 and tickets can be booked on, or by calling 07506 724572.”
