The ever popular Potted guys are back with the next in their series.
Having enjoyed great success with their previous production Potted Potter – a theatre show where comedy duo Dan and Jeff acted out all the Harry Potter novels in an hour – they decided to give all sixty novels featuring Sherlock Holmes the same fast paced treatment.
The magnitude of the task quickly becomes apparent, with the cast moving through each story at breakneck speed. This makes it impossible to become truly immersed in any one story, which is kind-of the point, and is compensated for by the brilliant comic timing and improvisation skills of Dan. He is the more outgoing of the two men, and has the ability to reduce the crowd to howls of laughter in an instant. The passion and humour on show make going to see Potted Sherlock an elementary choice!
