SUP Theatre Company are excited to announce that our next production at the Nuffield Theatre is going to be….

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency!

By Douglas Adams, adapted by James Goss and Arvind Ethan David

30th January – 3rd February 2018

 Dirk Gently, self-styled private investigator, sets out to prove the fundamental interconnectedness of all things by solving a mysterious murder, assisting a mysterious professor, unravelling a mysterious mystery, and eating a lot of pizza – not to mention saving the entire human race from extinction along the way (at no extra charge). With a time span of four billion years, quirky characters, dry humour, time travel and magic – what more do you need?
