Project Description

SHERLOCK HOLMES And The Curse Of The Queen’s Diamond
An Unrecorded Case, By Royal Request

A Ridiculously Funny Comedy! Simply Magical!

Written by acclaimed playwright, ROBERT FRIDJHON, this very funny and absurdly inventive tale is the one case the British Empire never wanted mentioned, or written about. Ever.

Starring …

Award-winning ROBERT FRIDJHON, whose impressive list of theatrical credits include Pythonesque, Travels with My Aunt, Boeing-Boeing, Perfect Wedding, The Mousetrap, Don’t Dress For Dinner, A Load Of Bull, Wild, Jeeves & Wooster and Bohemian Rhapsody.

CRAIG JACKSON, who is best known for his film and television work (Kota Life Crisis, Skwizas, Binneland and Isidingo), not least of which is his starring role as Featherstone in seasons 2, 3 and 4 of the international hit series, Black Sails.

BRONWYN GOTTWALD (assistant writer) whom television audiences saw as Barker Haines’ lawyer in Isidingo and theatre audiences will know from numerous productions including A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Overruled, Boeing-Boeing, The Mousetrap, Funny Business and Twitch.

Directed by the celebrated and multi award-winning ALAN SWERDLOW (recently returned from a season directing opera in the UK and Italy), this rollicking yarn promises to be this year’s only cure for stress, mild depression and consumption. Instructions to follow, but do book now; seating is limited to seats and certain carpeted areas.

Suitable for the entire family, as well as those without.

It’s elementary … get your tickets!

“It’s perfect for those who want to start 2017 on an edifying but more importantly, entertaining note. A superb cast. A madcap style, the writing wraps itself around your mind for great battle while collapsing everyone, including those on stage into fits of giggles.” Diane de Beer – Huffington Post
