Popular comedy theatre company Shoddy Theatre are heading on a UK tour with their Edinburgh Fringe hit The Shoddy Detective And The Art Of Deception. Inspired by comedy classics such as Only Fools and Horses, The Two Ronnies and Morcambe and Wise, The Shoddy Detective is a whodunnit caper for the whole family. 

A Shoddy Detective and the Art of Deception

A bumbling detective is called upon to uncover the mystery of a priceless stolen painting, but when he cannot solve it himself he is forced to enlist the help of an old nemesis.

Side Splitting
- The Up Coming
The energy is infectious
- Spy in the Stalls
The whole thing is gloriously silly and slapstick
- A View From Outside

Together, the pair must interrogate the many characterful suspects that reside at the manor, in order to catch the conniving culprit and solve the crime of the century.

Please note: Contains sexual references and humour 

What the critics say

The farce had the audience laughing throughout.
- North East Theatre Reviews
I knew I was in for a night of comedy and they certainly delivered.

Witty, endearing and good clean fun.
