A brand new adaptation of Jerome K Jerome's comic novel masterpiece: Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing Of The Dog).
It is the story of a boat trip taken along the Thames in 1889, starting at Kingston and heading to Oxford. Chaos naturally ensues in this perfectly British slice of hilarity.
Praise for Martin Prest:
'My number one stand out performance of the year'
'Prest [is] a natural storyteller, and has the charisma to make 60 minutes of just him, just compelling.' ****
