"We're so excited to welcome Mark & Sue to GFT! This new version of their hit play is sure to delight audiences this summer."

Helen Juvonen & Tyler J. Seguin, Co-Artistic Directors

The Play:

Three Men in a Boat follows the misadventures of three friends – Jay, Harris, and George (and their beloved dog, Montmorency) – as they embark on what should be a relaxing boating expedition along the River Thames.

From battling over-packed hampers to struggling with troublesome weather, their journey becomes a rollercoaster of laughter and chaos. Filled with witty banter, clever observations, and ridiculous mishaps, Brownell & Miner offer a new vision of Jerome K. Jerome’s Victorian satire that proves that sometimes the best way to navigate life is to simply embrace the absurdity.

"I am grateful to the Guild Festival for the opportunity to reimagine this story and these wonderful characters. To see it done in such a majestic place with such a talented cast and creative crew is a real joy for me.” - Mark Brownell, Playwright
