The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Presented by Black RAT Productions and Blackwood Miners’ Institute

A brand-new comedy (with songs!)
written and directed by Richard Tunley
with music by Kieran Bailey

The team that brought you The Invisible Manis back with a gloriously funny take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated sleuth.

Based loosely on the classic stories, this is a Sherlock mystery with a difference!

When a series of ghastly crimes hit Victorian London, Sherlock Holmes and his faithful side-kick Doctor Watson must unravel the mysteries surrounding these frightful misdemeanours in order to save Great Britain and even Queen Victoria herself.
But who is behind these dastardly wrongdoings? And will our dynamic duo save the day?

In true Black RAT style, an energetic cast of four bring familiar characters from the Sherlock stories to life in this brand spanking new romp – full of adventure, laughs and terrific songs.

Songs? Yes, that’s right. Didn’t you know that Sherlock could belt out a mean rock ballad or two, or Dr. Watson could give Michael Bublé a run for his money?

Cheeky and fast-paced, expect farcical surprises, brilliant theatrical invention, and a new twist on the greatest detective of all time.
