The Detectives would like to present an immersive theatrical shadow theatre….

Using light and shadow the Detectives present an immersive theatrical exploration of the mind behind the great detective Sherlock Holmes. Arthur Conan Doyle’s story is as intriguing and mysterious as the famous detective himself, when fairies and spirits get involved, it really has to been seen to be believed.
