ArtsCentreTheatre presents their take on the inhabitants of 221b Baker Street performed by two casts, alternating nightly.
Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson find themselves in a dark and, apparently, deserted theatre with no idea how they got there or who brought them to the place. Suddenly from the gloom a familiar voice rings out; it is James Moriarty, Professor of Mathematics and Napoleon of Crime, who proceeds to hold a drumhead court to discredit the Master Sleuth with Inspector Lestrade as the Judge and the testimony of six women from Holmes’ past cases as his evidence.
But is all as it seems? Is the Professor actually responsible for what is transpiring or is it the work of some even more devious power; and if the latter, what is their ultimate goal?
