In Edinburgh for the first time in three years, Dan and Jeff premiere their fourth family comedy adventure, compressing all 60 Sherlock Holmes stories into 70 frenetic minutes of stage time!

We asked Jeff what it’s like to take on such iconic roles… ‘They’ve been portrayed so much. With The Hound of the Baskervilles alone, there are over 30 radio, TV and stage adaptations. It helps that Sherlock Holmes is particularly popular at the moment, with the BBC series and the Hollywood films, and we include a few nods to Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. But we genuinely have an interest in the subject from the literature perspective and our show is coming at it from that side. Really, we just do shows so we get to be things we want to be: we’ve done wizards (with Potted Potter), pirates (Potted Pirates), and princesses (Potted Panto) and now we get to play detective. That’s cool!’
