This Christmas, DEM Productions, Fat Goose Productions and Theatre Nerd Productions bring New York Times Critic’s Pick A Sherlock Carol to London after a knock-out off-Broadway run last year.
Many joyful years since Dickens’ most infamous miser came to honour Christmas in his heart and keep it all the year, Ebenezer Scrooge has suffered a mysterious and peculiar death. Distraught by the passing of his reformed benefactor, a grown-up and not-so-Tiny Tim visits the great detective Sherlock Holmes to ask him to investigate the curious case.
But it’s a dark and treacherous Christmas Eve, and once again the night is haunted by the spirits of the past, present and future. Using his elementary powers of deduction, can Holmes overcome his own ghosts to solve the mystery?
“An instant holiday classic”, A Sherlock Carol gets its first production in the UK for a limited run at the Marylebone Theatre, just a stone’s through away from 221B Baker Street itself.
The Marylebone Theatre is London’s newest cross-cultural, performance space. Once known as the Steiner Hall, the theatre has undergone an extensive refurbishment, as a result of which it is now a versatile, state-of-the-art space, launching with an exciting programme of theatre performances, concerts, dance and spoken word events.
At the Marylebone Theatre, our goal is to produce distinctively visionary theatre, which explores and refreshes the great poetic tradition whilst boldly engaging with the pressing issues of our times. Drawing on the inspiration of theatre visionaries, from Brook and Miller to Steiner and Chekhov, we aim to create performance art, which is daringly innovative and arrestingly beautiful. We place a special emphasis on intercultural creativity and the inspiration that arises from working across cultural barriers. As well as in-house productions, we curate a high-quality programme of music, dance and poetry performances. We also welcome in-coming companies from all over the world. Through our funded community-in-the-arts scheme, we also support numerous local groups with important social missions and run our own youth theatre and arts-based educational programme.
