A quintessentially British comedy is on its way to the Cambridge Arts Theatre.

Audiences can enjoy a feast for the eyes and ears with Craig Gilbert’s production of Jerome K. Jerome’s Three Men in a Boat from Wednesday (January 21) until Saturday, January 24.

In an attempt to escape the stresses of city life, friends J, Harris and George, accompanied by their canine companion Montmorency, decide to take to the river in order to rejuvenate.

The holiday, however, quickly unravels and descends into chaos. Originally intended as a guide to boating on the Thames, Jerome’s ripping yarn of youthful friendship, mischief and folly comes complete with a working pub, live piano accompaniment, ale, music hall singing, and physical comedy. The Hunts Post has a pair of tickets to the Wednesday night performance to give away.

To stand a chance of winning, just tell us in which year Three Men in a Boat was published.

Email your answers along with your name and daytime contact number to by the deadline of 12noon on Monday.
