POTTED SHERLOCK at Vaudeville Theatre, London: 8th December 2014 – 11th January 2015
For a strictly limited Christmas holiday run, double Best Entertainment Olivier Award nominees Dan and Jeff star in the London premiere of their new show Potted Sherlock, hot on the heels of worldwide hit Potted Potter and festive funhouse Potted Panto.
This show sees the duo return with their greatest challenge yet: the entire works of one of the greatest detectives in literary history, Sherlock Holmes. All sixty stories retold in eighty elementary minutes!
Fresh off the success of potting Potter, Panto and Pirates, there is no duo better equipped for such a task… however, they quickly learn that Sherlock, having appeared in four novels, 56 short stories and over 200 films, is a bigger challenge than they had anticipated!
As a nod to Sherlock’s famous address of 221B Baker Street, tickets for the season are priced at £22.18, with a special family rate available of £20 when four or more seats are purchased together. And for super-fans of all things Sherlock there is a special late-night show on Saturday 13 December at 9.45pm.
This is a more sophisticated Potted adventure than the previous three shows, set in the rich and vibrant world of Arthur Conan Doyle where plot twists, elaborate disguises and secret passages are compulsory! For the first time the double act will be joined on stage by a third performer, Lizzie Wort, to help them work their way through the many characters of the Holmes canon in just eighty minutes. This delicious romp through the canon of Arthur Conan Doyle is fabulous fun for the whole family.
Dan and Jeff have earned widespread acclaim and a fan base that crosses generations. Potted Potter played five sold-out Fringe seasons in Edinburgh, five sold-out London runs and extensive U.K. and international tours prior to its critically acclaimed US Premiere at the Little Shubert Theatre in New York City in 2012. They have recently been nominated for two Olivier Awards; Best Entertainment and Family Show for Potted Potter’s 2011 run at the Garrick and Best Entertainment Show for Potted Panto at the Vaudeville in 2010.
Written by Daniel Clarkson and Tom Clarkson. Performed by Daniel Clarkson, Jefferson Turner and Lizzie Wort. Directed by Hanna Berrigan. Designed by Simon Scullion and Louie Whitemore. Lighting by Tim Mascall. Sound by Tom Lishman.
