Sherlock Holmes to visit Gloucestershire venues this Christmas

Where: Various Gloucestershire venues

When: Various dates

Four actors, one mystery...and no clue! A thrilling new comedy is currently touring round theatres, village halls and other community venues in Gloucestershire.

Famed for their Shakespeare summer season UK tours, professional Gloucester-based Rain or Shine Theatre Company are delighted to be on tour again this winter with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic characters.

After the success of The Hound of the Baskervilles, and Dracula, Rain or Shine are dying to bring you yet another fantastic evening of entertainment with their own individual comedic style. The dynamic duo return to solve one of the Victorian era's biggest mysteries: Sherlock Holmes and The Curious Case of Dr Jekyll & Miss Hyde.

Join Sherlock Holmes, together with his trusty sidekick Dr Watson, and watch a case unfold that is less elementary, and more fantastical than ever before.

Hailed as "a delicious mirthfest", Rain or Shine will once again be reinventing the classic Sherlock Holmes characters using their now signature Morecambe & Wise-ish comedy style for another season of mystery, mayhem, but, above all, multi-role madness!

Set in authentic Victorian costume, with a cast of four playing a whole host of characters, Rain or Shine are sure to delight and enchant those new to the tale, and those who already know it.

The tour has already included sold-out performances in Brockhampton, Lea and Wotton-under-Edge, with upcoming shows at the following Gloucestershire venues:

  • Prestbury WI Hall - Friday 14th December at 7.30pm
  • Apperley Village Hall, near Tewkesbury - Saturday 15th December at 7.30pm
  • St Barnabas Church Hall, Gloucester - Saturday 22nd Dec at 7.30pm
  • The Everyman Theatre Irving Studio - Thursday 3rd January at 2pm & 7.45pm - ALMOST SOLD OUT!
