I Hear Voices Theatre Company presents…
“A Terrible Case of Sherlock Holmes:
The Excruciating Affair of the Ivy House Academy”
Written by Darren Gooding
Starring: Damien Bell, Darren Gooding, Dave Hughes & Sara Jane Derrick
Music composed by Darren Tansley

Sherlock Holmes is renowned as the world’s greatest consulting detective; known through the stories of Doctor John Watson to be cool, detached, analytical and a master of subtle disguise. The truth is somewhat different...

With Holmes at the height of his eccentric behaviors the squabbling duo find their conflict of wits and wills exacerbated when they are unwillingly embroiled in the investigation of a baffling royal disappearance at the remote and terrifying “Ivy House Academy”.

Can the good doctor exorcise the demented Sherlock’s personal demons before all is lost, what is brother Mycroft’s mysterious diplomatic mission and what does all this have to do with the plague of cheeky street urchins which is ravaging the smoggy streets of Victorian London?

‘I Hear Voices’ have the answer and if you’re very lucky they might just remember what it is…

WARNING: The show contains strong language and some gratuitous surrealism and is therefore unsuitable for young children.
