Three men in a boat

The Friends of Rock Road Library invite local residents to enjoy a dramatisation of Jerome K Jerome’s comic novel Three Men in a Boat – a one-man show by local actor Geoff Hales.

The show is at Rock Road Library and starts at 8 p.m. after a welcome drink. There is no fixed charge but the Friends invite the audience to donate towards their funds, which go back into events such as this.

Geoff Hales read English at Cambridge, went away and came back! He runs his own theatre company, ‘Travelling Theatre’, which performs one-man shows about great writers. He has appeared all over England and in Prague, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Germany and Switzerland.

Three Men in a Boat was first published in 1899 and has never been out of print since. Come and see why!

NOTES FOR EDITORS

The Friends of Rock Road Library support the work of the library and arrange community events to support it. The Friends Group originally came into being to create a garden at the back of the library. See http://rockroadlibrarygarden.blogspot.com/.

They supported the library throughout the period of threatened cuts to its funding.

 

Rock Road Library is on Rock Road, between Cherry Hinton Road and Blinco Grove.

    I am keen to track down Geoff Hales to book him for an event as part of Evesham Festival of Words 2017, but can’t find email or any contact details for him. Can you please advise how I contact him.

    • Hallo Sue. I haven’t been in touch with him since I was Press Officer for the Friends of Rock Road Library a few years ago but I will email you the contact details that I had then. Good luck with your Festival!
