A new comedic take on the World’s Greatest Consulting Detective. Holmes is the greatest detective the world has ever known. Watson is the world’s greatest detective sidekick. Mrs. Hudson is the world’s greatest… housekeeper? Join Holmes and Watson as they race through the cobbled streets of London to catch a killer! Will they succeed? Will the Empire topple? Will Mrs. Hudson have to clean up the mess? After touring to sold-out houses and amazing reviews across Canada and the U.S., we’re finally bringing this fast-paced, slapstick comedy home to Ottawa where it was created.
“silly — profoundly and hilariously silly.” 4 Suns – Edmonton Sun
“Christopher Bange’s comedic take on the world’s greatest consulting detective is both whimsical and affectionate. Despite the silly approach, the heart of the plot is a true mystery.” – The Charlebois Post
“From some amusing shadow puppetry to big, boldly comic characters, Hansom Cab Killer delivers plenty of big stupid laughs. It’s easy to deduce that this one’s a crowd-pleaser.” – CBC Winnipeg
