For those who fancy a bonkers, surreal and hilarious alternative to panto, head for Common Ground Theatre Company’s touring production of Sherlock Holmes and The Hooded Lance, which runs from Friday 15th December to Saturday 13th January.
The show visits The Seckford Theatre on December 15th and 16th, John Peel Centre from December 18th-20th. Also, it visits, St Mary’s Hall from December 28th to 30th. The performance is at Jubilee Hall from January 1st-3rd, Corn Hall from January 4th, Headgate Theatre from January 5th-6th and Wolsey Studio from January 8th-13th.
The show is the latest concoction from Pat Whymark and Julian Harries, best known for their hugely successful Christmas shows for Eastern Angles Theatre Company (including last year’s smash hit, Stoat Hall) and for their own company, Common Ground.
Holmes and Watson faces their stiffest challenge yet, in the shape of the Hooded Lance, their newest and deadliest adversary, who is hell bent on spoiling everyone’s Christmas and being really annoying!
Julian dons the famous deerstalker yet again, and is joined by the fabulous Dick Mainwaring (Dr Watson) and the incomparable Joe Leat, for a classic Christmas mystery with all the Common Ground trimmings – sparkling wit, ingenious staging, hilarious songs, and surreal flights of festive fancy.
