Interactive experience: Sherlock in Homes: Murder at the Games

Northampton’s Royal and Derngate is to present an online interactive theatrical experience at Christmas 2021, Sherlock in Homes: Murder at the Games.

Sharp Teeth Theatre and The Wardrobe Theatre have created a murder mystery for audiences to solve from the comfort of their home.

Stephanie Kempson, artistic director of Sharp Teeth Theatre and director of the show, said, “we’re passionate about making sure theatre remains accessible for audiences who might still be shielding, or might want join from across borders, who might be carers or parents, or those who might feel nervous returning in-person to theatres.”

Sherlock in Homes: Murder at the Games is written by Peter Baker, currently playing Trigger in Only Fools and Horses the Musical at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket, in collaboration with the company.

There will be two showings a day from Tuesday 28 to Thursday 30 December and on Saturday 1 January at 6 and 8PM.
