An Evening with Sherlock Holmes is, indeed, unique. Three one-act plays showcase the skills of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, aided by housekeeper Mrs. Hudson and the Baker Street Irregulars. A collection of memorable characters, both good and evil, enhance the action. Reminiscent of a 19th century London pub, this production offers a variety of performers sharing their talents. Much like a revue, there will be short performances before the “Evening” gets under way, as well as a bit of fun and music between each individual “case” that is presented. The game’s afoot with mayhem, mystery, music and merriment.

The triad of one acts begins with The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor, the tale of a British aristocrat, Sir Robert, who marries an American heiress because his family fortune has run out. However, on the wedding day, his young American wife, Hatty Doran, disappears. Sir Robert immediately calls on Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson to uncover the mystery of what has happened to Hatty.

The Milverton Adventure, pits Holmes and Watson against a nefarious blackmailer, Charles Milverton, who is blackmailing one of Holmes' clients, a woman who wrote several damning letters to a former lover that could, if revealed, destroy her impending marriage to the Earl of Dovercourt. In his effort to save his client, Holmes plans a radical solution: burgling Milverton's house and retrieving the damning correspondence. On the night of the burglary, however, Holmes' and Watson's attempt is interrupted by an unforeseen incident.

In the concluding case, an original play written in the style of Arthur Conan Doyle closes out the evening. The Disappearance of Adam, makes this evening with Holmes unique. In this final one-act, the great detective….the super sleuth of innumerable cases, must solve the riddle that has puzzled the most brilliant minds in history!
