Not Quite Sherlock: The Case of The Deceptive Detective

London, 1896. Barnaby Gibbs is an incurable optimist, a Sherlock Holmes fan, and a man who knows he’s not particularly good at anything. One night, while checking on a friend’s empty house, he encounters a stranger, dressed entirely in black, holding a bag full of stolen belongings and attempting to write a poem about sapphires. There is only one conclusion a reasonable man could come to: this is the notorious cat burglar/con-man known as the Rhyming Bandit! Fortunately, Barnaby Gibbs is not a reasonable man, and when the stranger explains he is actually the famous detective Antoine Feval, a new crime-fighting duo is born.
Not Quite Sherlock is a one-man comedy play about Victorian London’s most overlooked detective. But that’s not all. It’s 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.
