Pasquale looks ahead to Sherlock role
7:20am Sunday 1st September 2013 in News
SQUEAKY-VOICED Grays comedian Joe Pasquale says he is “relishing” his time playing super sleuth Sherlock Holmes.
Ha Ha Holmes will be at the Civic Theatre in Chelmsford from September 3 to 7 as it tours the UK and features the I’m A Celebrity winner in the main role.
The play is a comic version of the Hound of the Baskervilles, first written by Arthur Conan Doyle in 1902, with Pasquale donning the main character’s famous cape and deerstalker.
The comedian said he has enjoyed playing Holmes as it is different from other roles he has had.
Pasquale said: “Sherlock Holmes is a real stretch for me. But I’ve loved it.
“I’ve enjoyed working with Ben Langley, who wrote the play and co-stars as Doctor Watson.
“The relationship between Holmes and Watson is funny. Holmes is the master criminal hunter and Watson is his apprentice, so there is great scope for comedy there.
“People are fascinated by him. Some even used to write to 221b Baker Street asking for his help.”
Tickets cost between £17 and £24.50 and there are matinees on Thursday and Saturday at 2.30pm.
