Sherlock in Homes III Murder at the Gates

New online live performance puts audience in the detective seat

Creators of Sherlock in Homes are back for a third time with a brand new murder mystery this Christmas.

Sherlock in Homes III: Murder at the Games, will allow audiences to solve a brand new interactive mystery online.

The popular format allows audience members to pit their wits against the cast’s actor improvisers. They can interrogate suspects live and work together to unmask the murderer.

Each performance takes place live on Zoom, with players able to team up together and free companion/carer tickets available for disabled people needing additional support.

The story has been written by Peter Baker – currently playing Trigger in Only Fools & Horses: The Musical in London.

Baker has previously worked for the Agatha Christie estate and improvised over 200 murder mysteries with Degrees of Error in Murder, She Didn’t Write.

Artistic Director of Sharp Teeth Theatre, and director of the show, Stephanie Kempson said: We’re passionate about making sure theatre remains accessible for audiences who might still be shielding or might want join from across borders, who might be carers or parents, or those who might feel nervous returning in-person to theatres. This show is for anyone who can access the internet and creates a space for fun and connection with friends, family and fellow audience members!” 

The shows will be running online from 25 November until 08 January 2022.

Performances last 90 minutes – including an interval – and are suitable for audiences aged 12 years upwards.
