Sherlock Holmes and the Poison Wood

London 2024. Doggedly pursuing success as a private detective, Sherlock Holmes is faced with a new case; an unexplained death in the infamous environmental protest camp at Oakenwood. Supported by his media-savvy landlady, Dr Watson, Sherlock suspects that arch-nemesis Jan Moriarty is at the root of the case, but the game’s afoot and they must move fast to uncover the truth and foil her plans. In a world of cancel culture, deepfakes and digital manipulation, only self-discovery and acceptance can unlock this case.

THE KING OF NOTHING is a madcap, lo-fi two-hander take on the Hans Christian Andersen's Emperor's New Clothes, in which two “Swindlers” (aka actors) use an apparently improvised set and puppets to play all the characters and playfully fool the audience into imagining all kinds of things that plainly aren’t there...
