Synopsis

Banned by the Lord Chamberlain’s office for over seventy years, Sir Arthur Colan Doyne’s most sexually explicit Sherlock Holmes saga has for the first time been brought to the stage by the Ottershaw Players.

Crammed full of bawdy humour, lascivious dancing and Music Hall songs as you have never heard them before, this is Ottershaw’s finest and filthiest Farrago to date.

Will Holmes save the day and win the fragrant hand of Mrs Hudson? Is Watson crushed by his former partner’s rejection? How will our exotic dancers hide their blushes? Will Professor Moriarty’s fiendish device explode before the aardvarks reach the summit of Mount Olympus?
