Where there’s a will … call for Sherlock

ARTHUR Conan Doyle’s immortal creation, Sherlock Holmes, tackles another curious case in Sherlock’s Excellent Adventure, a comedy adventure by James Barry, touring this area, with dates starting at Warminster’s Athenaeum Friday on 10th May, and Bath Rondo on Saturday 11th.

Follow Sherlock Holmes and his incomparable sidekick Dr John Watson on this riveting, hitherto unpublished case … Damsel in distress Lucy Matravers engages Holmes and Watson to resolve a dispute over a family will. Little do they know that this small case brings Holmes straight into the clutches of his arch enemy, James Moriarty.

This riotous spoof is played by four actors, with minimal furnishings and a ton of jolly-good fun! It went down at storm at the Edinburgh Fringe where it was described as “a wacky farcical adventure, which had the audience laughing and delighting in moments of silliness.”

The tour also includes performances at the Beehive Centre at Honiton on Friday 17th May, Ferndown’s Barrington Centre on Saturday 18th, the Palace Theatre at Paignton on Wednesday 22nd, the Marine Theatre at Lyme Regis on Thursday 23rd. and 8th June at Tiverton Community Arts Theatre.
