Not Quite Sherlock: The Case of the Deceptive Detective
Dust off your deerstalkers and pull out your pipes. Sherlock Holmes is (not quite) coming to Victoria Playhouse!
Chris Gibbs is back and better than ever with his hilarious one-man play about Victorian London’s most overlooked detective. But there’s more: Not Quite Sherlock is also a ridiculous comedy about an ex-street-performing comedian attempting to do a one-man comedy play about Victorian London’s most overlooked detective.
With wit, charm, timing, and almost no respect for the rules of theatre, Chris Gibbs creates a simple, hilarious theatrical experience unlike any other.
“Gibbs’ performance as the witless and self-deprecating Barnaby is near flawless. His martini-dry wit is characteristically sharp, in both script and performance, and his comic timing is beautiful.” – Joff Schmidt, CBC
“Clueless, guileless and absolutely priceless.” – Liz Nicholls, Edmonton Journal
“a highly skilled, confident comic actor whose writing is unrelentingly clever and whimsical” – Adrian Chamberlain, Victoria Times Columnist
Not Quite Sherlock is at the Victoria Playhouse September 13 – 17.
