Holmes and Watson

Thornton Little Theatre is proud to be home to Angus and Ross Theatre Company on Wednesday 25 September as they bring their comedy play, Holmes and Watson on its farewell tour of the British Isles.

Holmes and Watson are brought brilliantly to life by Julian Finnigan and Dominic Goodwin as they re-enact one of the detective's most baffling unrecorded cases - The Case of the Prime Minister, the Floozie and the Lummock Rock Lighthouse!

It's an affair upon whose outcome the security of Europe once hung by a thread, and shrouded in secrecy until now. The case has finally been approved by the government for public disclosure. It is understood that Mr Holmes has been entrusted by Her Majesty with the conveyance to the Tower of London of the fabled Satsuma Stone, stolen from the crown of William of Orange in the seventeenth century, and only recently discovered in Europe. One can only be thankful that Professor James Moriarty, the Napoleon of crime, fell to his death at the Reichenbach Falls. Or is he still alive, planning another deadly strike as he lurks, unseen, in the wings...? 

Written by Stuart Fortey, Directed by David Robertson it's fast paced entertainment at its best and will have you howling with laughter. This is your final chance to catch Holmes and Watson as they embark on their farewell tour. Don't miss them. It's elementary!!

Holmes and Watson - The Farewell Tour is at Thornton Little Theatre on 25 September at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 and are available to buy here or by calling 01253 887693.
