This Christmas, DEM Productions, Fat Goose Productions and Theatre Nerd Productions bring New York Times Critic’s Pick A Sherlock Carol to London after a knock-out off-Broadway run last year.

Many joyful years since Dickens’ most infamous miser came to honour Christmas in his heart and keep it all the year, Ebenezer Scrooge has suffered a mysterious and peculiar death. Distraught by the passing of his reformed benefactor, a grown-up and not-so-Tiny Tim visits the great detective Sherlock Holmes to ask him to investigate the curious case. But it’s a dark and treacherousChristmas Eve, and once again the night is haunted by the spirits of the past, present and future. Using his elementary powers of deduction, can Holmes overcome his own ghosts to solve the mystery?

“An instant holiday classic”, A Sherlock Carol gets its first production in the UK for a limited run at the Marylebone Theatre, just a stone’s through away from 221B Baker Street itself.
