The Company of Friends, a community drama and arts group comprising of actors with learning difficulties, brings their production of Sherlock Holmes and the Wolfman to the Black-E on Great George Street tonight and it promises to have you howling with fear and laughter in equal measure, as long as you escape the clutches of the Wolfman!
Directed by Paul Goetzee, this two night run is halfway through, so tonight is your last chance to see the Company of Friends perform in 2018. The Company of Friends was formed in 2009 and has treaded the boards all across the world since then, including at the Samuel Becket festival in Enniskillen, where they won Best Newcomer award and in New York, where they performed alongside drama groups from all over the world. Trailblazing, innovative, often hilarious and always highly entertaining, grab yourself a glass of mulled wine, take refuge from the encroaching cold and come and have a delightful evening with the Company of Friends.
The Black-E is a cultural arts and community centre based on Great George Street (right next to the Chinese Arch), a truly beautiful converted church building which has operated as an arts and culture hub since the 1960s. A fantastic location for a fabulous show, Sherlock Holmes and the Wolfman starts at 7pm and tickets will be available on the door. ‘It’s elementary, my dear Watson’ that a good time will be had by all!
