The humour shows a fairly coarse edge: Jonathan Race’s Harris bellows a predictable imprecation when struggling to insert his oars in their rollocks, while John Sackville’s Jerome and Drew Mulligan’s George possess voices even louder than their blazers. But the production nails the slapstick set-pieces rather more successfully than the attempts of Jerome’s uncle to nail a picture to the wall.

Nice, if brief, review of Riding Lights Theatre’s production currently running at York’s Theatre Royal.

And this from BBC North Yorkshire

Three men in a boatI have not enjoyed an evening at the theatre so much for a long time, this is an evening of real pleasure and I certainly was not alone in feeling this, as the applause from the audience proved, resulting in numerous curtain calls.

I would urge you to pay this excellent show a visit.
