The Game’s Afoot: Stories from Sherlock Holmes

Comments 12 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Tales for the Telling, Stories for Adults, is delighted to present Kathie Kompass and Mary Wiggin, who will be touring BC with their show which played to rave reviews at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa: “The Game’s Afoot: Stories from Sherlock Holmes“.

The Game’s Afoot: Stories from Sherlock Holmes

Tales for the Telling, Stories for Adults takes place at the McMillan Arts Centre in Parksville but they’ll be bringing their Sherlock Holmes presentation to Vancouver for one night only!

Where: The Emerald Supper Club (555 Gore Ave, Vancouver)
When: Thursday, March 3, 2016 from 8:00pm to 10:00pm
Tickets: Just $10. Available online now.

Step out of the shadows and plunge into the fog-dampened streets of Holmesian London. Holmes’ very existence is threatened, but Watson is determined to help his dear friend in any way he can. And don’t imagine that sortie to the bucolic countryside will provide a safe haven, especially for the former captain of an Arctic whaler whose past has come back to haunt him.

KathieKompassandMaryWigginKathie Kompass has 30 years of experience as a storyteller and when she is not accompanying Holmes and Watson across the moors or into the Sussex countryside, is leading storytelling workshops, coordinating two storytelling series in Ottawa, and telling stories on the stage, in schools, at festivals, in summer camps, and wherever anyone would like a story told.

Mary Wiggin is renowned for her exquisite sense of language and her flashes of quicksilver humour and delights audiences with her well-honed tales. As a devoted follower of the Great Detective, Mary is delighted to share one of his deliciously twisted tales.

    This show has now sold out in Parksville and is close to sold out in Victoria. Don’t miss out on the one-time to see it in Vancouver. And, unfortunately Cumberbatch had other commitments 🙂
