The venue is set up for a lecture, the strange little man organising the talk doesn’t ring true and his claim to be from Melbourne University is obviously false, but he attempts to tell us tales of Sherlock Holmes and his great abilities. Claiming to be a professor of Criminology he tries to explain the science of deduction and analysis.

His ruse is revealed when Dr Watson arrives, reveals his true identity and challenges his hypothesis. The following dialogue between the two is amusing and includes involving the audience in games and dances aimed at revealing Holmes’ great nemesis, who he believes to be present.

The two actors are good at their representation and bounce well off of each other keeping the pace up and the audience interest high.

Unfortunately the information does not name the individuals which is a shame as being from the UK they are not known to us.

Worth a visit and a smile.
