Sherlock Holmes & The Poison Pen Letter The third in Simon Davis's series of spoofs (The Fictional Five, Licensed To Thrill), this hilarious farce features the World-famous Detective, his sidekick Dr Watson, and his adversary, the Insane Arch-villain Moriarty.

 

Holmes and Watson discover a dead body on their chaise longue. A distressed actress Sarah Moaney bursts in to suggest it is her thumbless uncle, Justice Fingers. But is it just an act, or part of Moriarty's fiendish plot to eliminate the Great Detective? The play proceeds at breakneck speed via outrageous puns and plot twists to a denouement - of sorts that will leave you baffled but hugely entertained.
