Sherlock Holmes and the Hooded Lance
With Julian Harries as Holmes & Dick Mainwaring as Watson.
COMMON GROUND TOUR HOTLINE – 07807 341364
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!
Can our intrepid duo save the festive season from the clutches of this dastardly demon. Can they cook his goose, or will he crush their baubles and make prize turkeys of them?”
Created by writing team Pat Whymark and Julian Harries, best known for their hugely successful Christmas shows for Eastern Angles Theatre
Julian dons the famous deerstalker yet again for a classic comedy Christmas mystery with all the Common Ground trimmings – sparkling wit, ingenious staging, hilarious songs, and surreal flights of festive fancy.
Julian and Dick continue their long-standing acting partnership – their first Xmas show together was Julian’s The Ghost of The Old Rep, for Eastern Angles Theatre Company (including last year’s smash hit, Stoat Hall) and for their own company, Common Ground.
The cast also includes Common Ground regular Joe Leat, local actor/musician Emily Bennett and Patrick Neyman, who was a memorable villain (John Dumdeedee) in Stoat Hall, our Xmas show for Eastern Angles last year.
