|The Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes|
ADVENTURES OF THE IMPROVISED SHERLOCK HOLMES (UK)
Following sold-out FRINGE WORLD seasons in 2016, 17 and 19, Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes returns to Perth. Starring a rotating cast of the UK’s best comedy improv artists, the story is new each show, with suggestions from the audience driving a bizarre mystery solved by Sherlock.
The show rotates who plays Sherlock Holmes each day, and takes inspiration from the mystery and intrigue of the Victorian era – a time when Australia was a land of allure and enchantment to adventurous Brits. Director Tom Wilkinson says: “The show is completely new every day, prompted by a suggestion slip we pick out of a silk top hat. Everyone in the queue gets to suggest what the ‘case’ Sherlock will solve that day will be”.
The versatile troupe of Daniel Nils Roberts (Racing Minds), Tom Skelton (Racing Minds) and Alice Winn will also be seen in the most exciting comedy shows across Perth. The Cheeky Sparrow is hosting Tom Skelton: 2020: Visions (What if I hadn’t gone Blind?) and Daniel Nils Roberts: History of the World in 1 Hours.
The cast originally met while studying at Oxford University, where they joined improvisation comedy group, the Oxford Imps, whose spin-off group of 2011 graduates formed Racing Minds, now one of the biggest improv names on the international Fringe circuit.
**** "The production is rife with moments of sparkle and intelligence ...
copious amounts of talent and boundless potential" (Plays To See)
**** "This excellent improvised show is full of laughs, madness, and superb deductions ... very funny and beautifully devious" (Fringe Guru)
“Good improvisation is like walking a tightrope;
it’s a dangerous form of theatre without a net” (The West Australian)
