Preview: Holmes and Watson at South Shields Customs House
Fringe Hit Comes to The Customs House
Holmes and Watson: The Farewell Tour
South Shields Customs House
Wednesday 15th March 2017
Following a sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, a laugh-out-loud comedy is heading to the North East next week.
An evening of intrigue, amazement and amusement is in store as Holmes and Watson continue with their farewell tour at The Customs House in South Shields next Wednesday.
Alongside his faithful sidekick Dr Watson and with the able aid of trusted compatriots Mrs. Hudson and Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard, Sherlock Holmes will attempt to re-enact one of his most baffling unsolved cases.
Expertly written by Stuart Fortey, there’s everything you might expect from Sherlock Holmes – and more.
Customs House Executive Director Ray Spencer said: “We are always looking for the best shows to bring to The Customs House. Holmes and Watson: The Farewell Tour has won repeated rave reviews and sold out the Edinburgh Fringe Festival so we knew we were on to a winner.
“This is an infectiously funny Holmes presented with panache, an explosive blend of murder mystery and irresistible comedy. So pit your deductive skills against those of the Great Detective as a case unfolds before your very eyes.
“This is your final chance to catch Holmes and Watson on their farewell tour. Don’t miss it, it’s elementary!”
Directed by Tristan Pate and performed by Adrian Banks, Liam Nooney, Margaret Prendergast and Alan Proudfoot, this is ‘…an excellent romp of a mystery that will have you laughing along’ (BROADWAY BABY).
Holmes & Watson: The Farewell Tour is at The Customs House in Mill Dam, South Shield on Wednesday 15th March 2017 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £16 or £14 concession and are available from the box office in person, by calling 0191 454 1234 or by visiting www.customshouse.co.uk.
