Sherlock Holmes… the Death and Life
24 - 29 November 2008
by David Stuart Davies
The World’s Greatest Detective refuses to leave the stage!
A wryly humorous tale of murder, mystery and the occult. Arthur Conan Doyle tires of his famous sleuth and creates arch villain Professor Moriarty to dispose of him. But Doyle’s obsession with raising the spirits of the dead clashes with his fictional creations, who return to thrill, intrigue and mesmerise us.
‘Roger seems born to play the part, commanding the stage alone while playing to the audience and unseen characters with humour and panache’

‘This is a truly great production, a wonderfully written, beautifully directed play that perfectly hits the mark that lies between the play of ideas and the play of entertainment’
