Three Men in a Boat (To say nothing of the Dog)
May 8, 2014 >> June 8, 2014
Written and directed by Derek Goldman
Based on the novella by Jerome K. Jerome
Still fresh and witty after more than a century, Jerome K. Jerome’s delightful travelogue tells the story of three young men suffering from a severe case of “overwork”. Accompanied by their dutiful terrier Montmorency, they take a boating holiday through the country, getting into one satirically hilarious predicament after another along the way. Adapted from a novel consistently ranked as one of the funniest of all time, this production will be directed by a renowned area director Derek Goldman and choreographed by Synetic’s Irina Tsikurishvili. This production runs one hour and forty minutes with no intermission.
Featuring DC theater favorites – Tim Getman, Tom Story, Rob Jansen, and Alex Mills (Hamlet).
