Welcome to Pyramus and Thisbe Productions! I thought I had retired from acting, but it seems not! The pull to the stage was too strong! So here I am back on the road again! Albeit on shorter tours than in previous years! There are more plans for the future, including a Christmas show, but more news to come in a while, watch this space!
Cheers, Dominic Goodwin

Holmes and Mrs Hudson:
For One Night Only!
By Stuart Fortey
Directed by Thomas Frere
Touring Autumn 2020
Thrill with excitement as Sherlock Holmes and his landlady Mrs Hudson reconstruct for your entertainment the Case of the Frivolous Vicars!
* Try and deduce who killed Constance McMerryweather in the vicarage garden with a quoits spike!
* Ask yourself what, if anything, has Aladdin to do with it?
(Quite a lot, actually!)
Deprived of his usual sidekick Dr Watson, Sherlock teams up with Mrs Hudson, who proves more than equal to the task in hand. But what exactly is her relationship with Holmes? And is it for One Night Only?
A smorgasbord of foreign languages, coded poems,
ballet and opera; HOLMES & MRS HUDSON is pure fun and silliness from beginning to end!
Many venues already in the tour including:
Georgian Theatre Royal (Richmond)
Helmsley Arts Centre
Gilling East Village Hall
The Broadbent Theatre, Lincoln
The Ropewalk (Barton-Upon-Humber)
The Swallow Theatre, Whithorn

The Kaiser and I
by Stuart Fortey
It's Berlin, 1914, and the music has to stop. Kaiser Wilhelm has summoned a dance instructress from England to put his officers through their paces, but now war is only days away…
From ballroom to battlefield and beyond, this two-hander charts the friendship of a man and a woman caught in their nations' crossfire.
Winner of the 2002 Buxton Festival Fringe
Best Drama Award
“An unusual story . . . a wonderfully written play skilfully combining humour and stark moments of wrenching sadness”
Buxton Fringe Review

Since 2009 Dominic has toured to the Swallow, but the theatre is now in need of a new roof, hence this show. The show is being staged at the Scottish theatre in aid the roof appeal.
