The Totally Awesome Detective Agency

In 1990 at the age of seven, two childhood friends solved a mystery.

They made the front page of the national newspapers, they went on Going Live and they got a Blue Peter badge.

For several years after, they sleuthed and investigated their time away, school holidays and long weekends were spent adventuring and investigating the mysteries that no one else could (be bothered to) crack.

Then they grew up.

25 years later a new mystery needs solving, one that has baffled law enforcement and everyone else who took a moment to Google it.

In 2005 all over the South Coast of England, 3D letters from shop signage began to go missing, no Police reports were filed as each incident was treated as petty vandalism.

No connection was made between the incidents until many months later when all of the stolen letters were found on a beach in the Westcountry, spelling out a curiously cryptic message.

Who did it and why?

After all these years can they crack the case?

Can they reform The Totally Awesome Detective Agency?

White Hippos Productions return to this year’s Fringe Theatrefest for a remarkable tenth year in a row with a funny, energetic and heart-warming new show.
