Audiences can enjoy an interactive theatrical experience by Zoom when Northampton’s Royal and Derngate stages an online murder mystery, Sherlock in Homes.

Sharp Teeth Theatre has created the show in which audiences will be invited to interview suspects and deduce the identity of the murderer.

Sherlock in Homes is written by Peter Baker in collaboration with a company of performers and improvisers. Sharp Teeth’s artistic director Stephanie Kempson directs.

There will be 17 performances between Friday 4 and Wednesday 23 December. A schedule and start times are available at the Royal and Derngate web site.
