SYNOPSIS:

“The game is afoot” in this exciting new take on the world’s most famous detective! In this unconventional adaptation on the characters we know and love, Miss Sherlock Holmes & Dr. Dorothy Watson must uncover the truth on a pattern of sinister murders in London. When Lizzie Chapman, a young newlywed begins to receive anonymous messages about her husband, a respected police inspector, insinuating that he is a murderer only Holmes and Watson can uncover the truth. Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle’s series of masterpieces, this new adaptation re-examines the world of Holmes and Watson through a feminist lens as they attempt to navigate a society that simply will not accept their brilliance.

These performances aim to provide a welcoming environment for individuals with sensory and cognitive disabilities, their families, and friends. They can include a reduction in harsh lighting and sound effects, low lighting in the theatre so patrons can walk around, a sensory guide, and more!
