The Christmas Goose and The Green Carbuncle                                   

Based on the short story "The Adventures of The Blue Carbuncle" by Sir Artur Conan Doyle

 

It's Christmas time in Victorian London. On patrol, police officer Peterson witnesses a fight between a gentleman and some thugs. At the sight of the police officer everyone runs off, the gentleman leaving behind his hat and a Christmas goose. While cooking the goose - for what else can be done with it - Peterson's wife discovers a priceless gem in the crop of the bird, the very stone stolen a few days earlier from the Countess of Morcar. High time for Peterson's friends Holmes and Watson to take a closer look at the gentleman's hat and begin to hunt for the thief...

 

In the second half of the programme, we will perform dramatised readings of other short stories with a Christmas/winter theme, e.a. by Oscar Wilde.
