1736: Two highwaymen plan the heist of the century. Can they steal the taxidermy lobster, 'Satan’s Pinch'? Will their quest for revenge save Britain from a corrupt political establishment? Who will survive betrayal and carnage with their dignity intact?

Dark, witty, over-the-top, Tarantino-esque period action-comedy about finding your true self and defying your masters.


'slick, funny, and brilliant'

The Accidental Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is touring festivals across the UK after two years of sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe.

When Sherlock Holmes unknowingly murders his own client, the game is on to track down the criminal mastermind who did it – Holmes himself!

Does Watson's rent have anything to do with this accident? Has this case been secretly planned by a narrative genius? Could Moriarty's hunger for new detective fiction fuel a global terror plot of unimaginable proportions? Join the world-famous detective as he unravels the strangest case of his career...

Three versatile actors bring you this witty, absurd take on Arthur Conan Doyle’s creation. Expect extraordinary plot twists, metafiction, twisted logic and almost unparalleled entertainment!


'a mystery befitting the greatest detective of them all'
