Sherlock Holmes investigates a duke's murder. But the real mystery is, why does an intelligent, sensitive soul like Watson stay in a relationship with an abusive, egotistical drug-addict?
A murdered aristocrat. A deadly snakebite. Decades of unlikely backstory effortlessly deduced from a single marmalade-stain. Sherlock Holmes should have this case nailed shut in time for elevenses, as long as he doesn't forget his morning opium. But this is the day that his long-suffering sidekick Watson's patience finally comes to an end.
Originally performed on the Edinburgh Fringe 2009 to sellout audiences and excellent reviews, Robin Johnson's Broken Holmes will return to the Edinburgh Fringe 2013 from 19 to 24 August.
