Sherlock Holmes and The Curse of The Queen’s Diamond … an unrecorded case, by royal request, at the Studio Theatre, Montecasino from 30 November.

Written by acclaimed playwright Robert Fridjhon, comes a very funny and absurdly inventive tale of the one case the British Empire never wanted mentioned, or written about. Ever.

Craig Jackson is best known for his film and television work (Kota Life Crisis, Skwizas, Binneland and Isidingo), not least of which is his starring role as Captain Featherstone in seasons 2,3 and 4 of the international hit series, Black Sails.

And Bronwyn Gottwald (assistant writer) whom television audiences saw as Barker Haines’ lawyer in Isidingo and theatre audiences will know from numerous productions including A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Overruled, Boeing-Boeing, The Mousetrap, Funny Business and Twitch.

Directed by the celebrated and multi award-winning Alan Swerdlow, this rollicking yarn promises to be this year’s only cure for stress, mild depression and consumption. Instructions to follow, but do book now; seating is limited to seats and certain carpeted areas.

Suitable for the entire family, as well as those without.
