    Went to Darlington's Civic Theatre to see the Original Theatre Company's take on Jerome K Jerome's classic tale of the mess men can make in boats... An enjoyable evening the story enlivened by a couple of modern jokes and some amusing harnessing of a song or two, the themes from Titanic and Chariots of Fire being very well received by an audience, sadly rather low in numbers, but appreciative for all that. I think JKJ would have approved, the company being, with the exceptions noted, very faithful to his text of his "Three Men In a Boat" first published in 1889, its stood the test of time and I'm pretty sure it will never have been out of print, my own copy being a centenary edition from the original publisher (Arrowsmith). I've just looked it up on Librarything and see that no less than115 reviews have been written from among the 3,794 members have it on their shelves and that 249 different covers adorn these copies.
