Event Description

“Watson, I’m sorry to say but they are dead, murdered, killed! This will be our toughest investigation yet, get my coat and my hat!”

When a body is mysteriously found lying in the middle of Landsdown Manor Gardens, the police have no option but to call on Sherlock Holmes and persuade him to take on his toughest case to date. With his loyal assistant Watson, our nation’s top detective duo battles through baddies and villains to discover who is behind the murder in the garden.

Brought to you by award-winning comedy troupe Calf 2 Cow (The Jabberwocky), this brand-new adaption is an outrageous comedy full of slapstick, multi-rolling and of course pumped full of live music and rock n roll!

Celebrating all of Sherlock’s wonder, mixed with a fresh take on a brand new tale, this will certainly be a comical night out that will leave you smiling.

Suitable for 12 plus – There will be blood…

We can’t wait to welcome Calf2Cow back to Penlee!

Produced by the Garden Theatre Festival and Calf 2 Cow, Supported by The Point, Dorchester Arts, Emerge  & Arts Council England.

“Similar work to Kneehigh in the 80s”
‘Had a brilliant night in Penzance watching the marvellous Calf 2 Cow performing The Jabberwocky & Other Nonsense. It was great from start to finish and so much fun!’
Audience reaction to last season’s THE JABBERWOCKY.

Calf 2 Cow Productions, proudly based in Bath, is quickly developing as a new touring slapstick comedy theatre company, creating highly visual theatre full of live rock n roll, bonkersness and mayhem. Our mission is to create and tour hilarious, boundary-pushing theatre using creative and energetic sweaty storytelling for nearly everyone!  (ages 4 – 104! – anyone younger or older is not allowed in. SORRY!) Our work has been seen across the UK and a couple of times in Europe, so we are international in a sort of way.
