No-script Sherlock debuts in Adelaide! Following sold-out seasons at Edinburgh Fringe and Perth Fringe World, British improv stars (including members of Racing Minds) are bringing Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes to Adelaide Fringe this summer. Tickets are now on sale for this strictly limited season (8 shows only).
Starring a rotating cast of the UK's best comedy improv artists, each performance offers a new adventure and takes inspiration from the mystery and intrigue of the Victorian era – a time when Australia was a land of allure and enchantment to adventurous Brits.
Director Tom Wilkinson says "The show is completely new every day, prompted by a suggestion slip we pick out of a silk top hat. Everyone in the queue gets to suggest what the 'case' Sherlock will solve that day will be".
The versatile troupe includes Tom Skelton (Racing Minds), Vicky Hawley and Caitlin Campbell, who will also be seen in the most exciting comedy shows across Perth, with the cast involved in seven shows between them, including Aaaand Now for MORE Kiddo Kaos!, Improv Allstars Up Late and Did you Hear what I Saw?
The cast originally met while studying at Oxford University, where they joined the Oxford Imps, whose spin-off group of 2011 graduates formed Racing Minds, now one of the biggest improv names on the international Fringe circuit.
