Sue Harper will be performing her story at Holmes Fest 2018’s Three Cheers For Arthur Conan Doyle on 27th June at The Square Tower.
Life Is Amazing: Hello Sue, tell us about your sketch at Holmes Fest 2018?.
Sue: My story is about the love between Holmes and Irene Adler. When it ends disastrously, she resolves to lead a life of crime and realises that there is a particular problem with becoming a criminal mastermind – her sex. Thus she works out a particularly fiendish way to spread havoc. And all ll is revealed at the Reichenbach Falls .
— Ohh! Have I given too much away? :).
Life Is Amazing: Why do you love Sherlock Holmes?
Sue: I like Holmes because he combines instinct and intellect, and has more than a dash of Asperger’s. I am also fascinated by him because of the scale of his repression. He thinks he works by logic: but in fact his best conclusions come from gut instinct
Sue: I would investigate the cause of broken hearts, and their rate of recovery.
Life Is Amazing: If Moriarty and Sherlock Holmes went shopping, what one item would each buy, and why?
Sue: Holmes would go shopping for a corset. Moriarty would shop for opium
