Midwest Premiere

Dr. Watson is called upon to disprove the many frauds, fakes, and charlatans who have popped up all over the world claiming to be Sherlock Holmes following his “death” at Reichenbach Falls. Watson travels to a remote mental asylum where three men have recently been admitted, each claiming to be the late detective and matching his physical description. Watson must confront the men and figure out which one is the real Holmes. This thrilling new drama, by the celebrated writer of the movies Mr. Holmes and Stage Beauty, is next up in our series of popular mysteries like The Mousetrap and The 39 Steps.

“Nowadays it is rare to encounter a genuine writer in the theater—someone…who has a genuine feel for language. So when such a thing comes along, it’s exciting…Hatcher’s voice is one I want to hear again soon." — NY Daily News
