Festive London run for Potted Sherlock

Published October 17, 2014

Olivier Award nominated duo Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner will be back in the West End this Christmas when they bring their new show Potted Sherlock to the Vaudeville Theatre from 8 December.

The show, which follows in the comically compressed footsteps of Potted Potter, Potted Panto and Potted Pirate, will play alongside fellow family hit The Wind In The Willows at the venue until 11 January.

Taking on what is arguably their greatest challenge yet, Dan and Jeff will condense Arthur Conan Doyle’s entire works about the notorious fictional detective – that’s a staggering 60 stories – into 80 elementary minutes.

The production is such a mean feat, in fact, that for the first time the double act will be joined on stage by a third performer. Lizzie Wort, who previously provided the narration for Potted Panto, will help them on their hilarious romp through the many characters, plot twists, elaborate disguises and secret passages of the Holmes canon.

In a pricing initiative that gives a nod to Sherlock Holmes’ famous address 221B, tickets for the production will be sold at £22.18.

On 13 December at 21:45, super fans can join the trio for a special late-night performance of all things Sherlock.
