Three Men in a Boat

Rodney Bewes in his solo adaptation of Jerome K. Jerome's

Rodney Bewes, one of the original Likely Lads, has adapted Jerome K. Jerome's well-loved comic novel Three Men in A Boat into a charming and hilarious one-man show, in which he stars, directs, and produces himself. Rodney's adaptation is set in 1912, 23 years after the book was written, with Jerome as narrator recalling his japes and scrapes and narrow escapes with George and Harris. Rodney's very own Edwardian skiff, and a dog on wheels called Montmorency, accompany Rodney, who plays all three characters, on this bizarre but entertaining adventure on the Thames.

His audience adores him...his delivery is so natural and appealing that it seems entirely spontaneous. - The List
