Sherlock Holmes and The Crimson Cobbles

Event information

A brand new Sherlock Holmes caper, delivered at breakneck pace in a hilarious, deeply daft theatrical explosion for adults and family audiences. Holmes and Watson are called upon to investigate the Whitechapel Murders which have recently sent shockwaves through London. But when the evidence points to only one possible conclusion – that Jack the Ripper is actually Sherlock’s trusted sidekick Dr Watson - is our super sleuth prepared to believe the unbelievable? From the team behind the smash hit touring productions of Around the World in 80 Days (Forest Forge tour 2009, Chipping Norton Theatre tour 2014), this witty, laugh-a-minute pastiche of Conan Doyle’s investigative pair takes on telling the story of one the darkest times in Victorian history. A fast paced, quirky piece of physical storytelling, bringing together the most famous fictional detective and infamous real-life characters for the first and only time.
