Autumn Season to Open with a Splash!...
The Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds will be teaming up with the local, widely successful, Original Theatre Company (Birdsong), to bring the much loved tale of Three Men in a Boat to the stage this Autumn!
Following a sell-out hit tour in 2012, Craig Gilbert’s ingenious, acclaimed adaptation of Jerome K Jerome’s classic tale of boating misadventure comes to the Theatre Royal’s stage from 4th - 12th September, armed with more singing, wilder adventures and sporting even brighter blazers!
When J., George, Harris and Montmorency take to the Thames, a whole host of unexpected happenings await them as they steer their way (mostly successfully!) from Kingston-upon-Thames to Oxford encountering swans, steam boats and a multitude of things to bicker about, along the way! A classic comedy of friendship and fresh-water folly, originally intended as a guide to boating on the Thames, Jerome’s ripping yarn celebrates the very essence of Britishness, inspiring many of our comic legends from Morecambe and Wise, to Monty Python.
The producers of Birdsong, The Original Theatre Company, will be teaming up with the Theatre Royal to take this classic tale of British misadventure by the scruff of the neck! Equipped with a working pub, live piano accompaniment, some ale, music hall singing, a dog, and a feast of physical comedy, settle yourself in for a night out to remember. And don’t forget to bring your blazer!
