Sherlock in Homes – Murder at the Circus!

Thursday 4th March 2021

Don your deerstalker, grab your notepad and boil your kettle! It’s time to Zoom in to a murder mystery from your own home.

Case File #1: Murder At The Circus

Expect high wires and even higher stakes as you play detective and attempt to unmask a murderer, in this Victorian case of dastardly behaviour and deadly death at The Bearded Lady’s Circus Of Wonders. Only you can solve this case.

We have teamed up with Sharp Teeth Theatre to bring this unique show, played out on Zoom, to audiences in Cornwall and Devon. Packed with dramatic twists and turns that unfold online, the fun theatrical experience invites the audience to help solve the case by turning detective, whilst pitting their wits against some of the UK’s most talented improvisers.

Murder at the Circus captures the liveness of being in an audience by asking viewers to interact with the fellow detectives via Zoom. If you’re growing weary of your own household’s company (as if!), this show provides the perfect way for members of the community and inter-generational family groups to don their deerstalkers and come together for an evening of sleuth-filled entertainment! Fancy dress is optional but welcomed, so stock up on snacks and refreshments and prepare to solve the case together…
